ATAS Foundation's Hicks retires


Price Hicks, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation's longtime director of educational programs and services, will retire at year's end.

Hicks has served as the chief liaison between the foundation and the academic community for more than 20 years, overseeing a department that administers three major national programs for college students and faculty: the Student Internship Program, the College Television Awards and Festival and the annual Faculty Seminar for college professors of film, TV and digital media.

"Price's contributions to the Academy Foundation over the past 20 years have been unprecedented," ATAS chief operating officer Alan Perris said. "She has provided opportunities for some of the industry's top professionals, and countless academy members owe their careers to the mentoring and awards programs Price developed."
