For Ellsworth American’s
Jesse Groening, a first year
of firsts as a videographer

By Maria Diaz
Bulletin Staff

Jesse Groening, now 24, attended his first day of work at The Ellsworth (Maine) American Jan. 23, 2012. It was the first time that the American had hired a videographer and the first time a newspaper in Maine had hired a full-time videographer.

Yet in his first year, Groening won five New England Newspaper and Press Association awards. At NENPA’s winter convention in February, he collected three first-place plaques and two second-place awards at NENPA’s awards banquet.

“The fact that he won three first-place awards and two others in the weekly division at the NENPA winter meeting was reassurance that we made the right decision,” Alan Baker, publisher of the American, said.

Groening was surprised to hear that he had won.

“I was shocked. It was a real honor to read all the comments that people had to say about my work afterwards,” Groening said. “ … (Y)ou never know that what you're doing is coming across and being seen by everyone and understood. It is a great confirmation.” MORE >
