Sidlow traveled to Washington, D.C., with 65 World War II and Korean War veterans from the Central Valley last summer and produced a documentary to tell their story. Sidlow earned her master’s degree from the MCJ Department in 2008.

The documentary also won a second place award for best faculty audio from the Broadcast Education Association super-regional conference in Columbia, S.C., in October.
