By PSW Staff • April 18, 2013 Clear-Com's Regional Sales Manager-Northwest USA and Canada Jay Wallace along with USITT Stage Management Award Recipient and University of North Carolina School of the Arts senior Peyton Becker. Clear-Com continues to demonstrate its dedication to the live sound industry through its ongoing support of the USITT (United States Institute for Theater Technology) Young Designers & Technicians (YD&T) Awards. This year, as the sponsor of the organization’s Stage Management Award, Clear-Com and USITT honored University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) senior, Peyton Becker, for her excellence in stage management and dedication to the performing arts. The award is part of USITT’s annual Conference & Stage Expo, which attracts roughly 4,000 design and production technology professionals each year. The YD&T Awards are presented to young designers and technicians in the industry who are beginning their careers and who demonstrate outstanding potential in areas such as stage management, technical production, makeup design, lighting design and more. In recognition of her contributions, Becker, like all past winners, received a cash reward and registration to the 2013 USITT Annual Conference and Stage Expo, where she was provided the opportunity to meet privately with the award adjudicators and sponsors during the conference. “As the Stage Management Award sponsor for more than a decade, Clear-Com is proud to be a part of the USITT. We are glad to support students in their early successes as well as honor their exceptional skills,” says Judy Cheng, Clear-Com’s Director of Marketing. “One of the standout portions of Peyton Becker’s submission was her unique use of technology to enhance live productions, which is a key goal of Clear-Com. “We congratulate Peyton on her achievements in the area of stage management. We know that she and the rest of this year’s winners will continue to accomplish amazing things in the field.” Clear-Com Comments Have something to say about this PSW content? Leave a comment!
