Emmy Award-winning Alumna Visits Campus

Emmy Award-winning Alumna Visits Campus

Nicole Young ’00, a 13-time Emmy Award-winner for her work as a producer on “60 Minutes,” spoke at the University’s Spring Community Breakfast. Young told the audience of Scranton area residents, faculty, sta and students that she wanted to become either a humanitarian or a journalist in order to have a platform to get the world talking about global issues.

Young said her experiences as a producer for “60 Minutes,” investigating starvation and poverty are overwhelming, yet strangely addicting.

At the breakfast, Young played a compilation of several of her shows from “60 Minutes,” including “Fighting Famine,” which focuses on a rare famine emergency in South Sudan. Young received a standing ovation at the end of her talk and said she was choked up about returning to Scranton after nearly 20 years.

“The Jesuit education [at Scranton] gave me the power and strength to do the work I do,” she said.
