Dawn Halfaker Accepts Television Academy Honors Award for HBO’s Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq

Halfaker and Associates' CEO, Dawn Halfaker, participated in the Inaugural Television Academy Honors Ceremony. Dawn accepted the Television Academy Honor for Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq, along with co-executive producer Alexandra Ryan and supervising producer Sara Bernstein. In her acceptance speech Dawn came to realize, she said, that "I represent a lot of people who didn't have the opportunity to tell their stories, of their sacrifices and their families' sacrifices. I'm very, very honored to be here."

Whether the subject matter is the decimation of war, the ravages of disease, the horrors of gang rape, the wonders of nature or the power of friendship, television has an unmatched power to depict socially relevant issues with insight and imagination.

Paying tribute to programming which engages viewers while at the same time educating and inspiring them to action was the motivation behind the newly created Television Academy Honors; Alive Day Memories was one of nine programs saluted.
