“We are all in service to telling great stories,” said Heim. “I have been privileged to be a part of my community – MPEG and ACE – and that work continues to be very important to me.

Said Roberts: “My career in this industry is an incredibly important part of my life, coaxing stories into life, working with some of the greatest people I have ever known. To receive this award from my friends at the HPA is heartwarming and means the world to me.
