The Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) elevated three members to the membership rank of Fellow. The SBE Board elected Lawrence Behr of Greenville, NC, James Schoedler of Denver and Larry Wilkins of Prattville, AL. at their meeting held Sunday, 4/7 in Vegas during the NAB Show.
Behr is CEO of the consulting group, LBA Group. Schoedler is a broadcast industry consultant. Wilkins is employed by the Alabama Broadcasters Association.
The Fellow honor is the highest membership level in the SBE. Members must have made significant contributions to the broadcast engineering field or the SBE. Candidates are nominated by their peers. Sixty-two members have been honored with the Fellow rank in SBE’s 49 year history.
The three recipients will be recognized for their election to Fellow during the SBE National Awards Dinner on 10/30 in Indianapolis. The dinner is part of the annual SBE National Meeting.
