Alexis Minor Raising the Bar

By Tyler Rogers 

       Within the Broadcast Education Association, there are many aspirational, hardworking and leader-like members who strive to achieve new heights every day. This organization is very fortunate to have a secretary that encompasses each of the beforementioned qualities, Alexis Minor. Recently, Minor has been awarded the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Suncoast Chapter scholarship totaling $5,000 towards tuition and textbooks for the Fall semester, which is offered to television interested majors. This scholarship is a gift from the Gamma Beta Phi organization on Southeastern Louisiana University’s campus, and is the direct result of hard work and perseverance. NATAS seeks to advance the field of television production and electronic media by presenting scholarships to talented and deserving students interested in making a difference in the field and their careers, as well as a positive impact on colleagues and professionals around them. The Gamma Beta Phi organization seeks students with a minimum 3.0 GPA, full-time student status, and dedication to serve at 20 hours yearly to supporting their community; criteria that fits Minor perfectly. She will continue to be a productive member of Gamma Beta Phi as a Sweetheart Officer going into the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. The Broadcast Education Association recently help its elections for the upcoming semester in which Minor has elected to continue serving as its Secretary. Not only in BEA, but Minor will also serve as the Secretary for the Honors Club during the 2018-2019 school year as well! Alexis Minor is someone who reaches far past her limits and always goes the extra mile as displayed in her campus involvement. Lastly, she hopes to be appointed as the Director of Communications and Marketing within the Student Government Association, and expects to hear an answer before the end of this school semester. If there’s anyone more suited to be in charge of all communications and marketing for the Student Government Association, it would be Alexis Minor. The BEA is excited to continue working with her, and wishes her the best in her future endeavors outside of the organization.
