The Wallowa native has
been serving as video coor-
dinator for the College of
Agriculture and Life Scienc-
es’ communications and cy-

at the University of Arizona

His recent documentary,
“Earthlight,” chronicles a
NASA-backed project at UA
to build 100 percent sustain-
able green houses to support
space exploration such as
trips to the moon and Mars.
The ¿lm earned an award
from The Rocky Mountain
Emmys on Oct. 17 in the cat-
egory of topical documentary.
Sheehy wrote, directed and
produced the ¿lm. He shared
the award with Executive Pro-
ducer Dave Bogner.
The Rocky Mountain Em-

tional Academy of Television
Arts & Sciences that is “ded-
icated to excellence in televi-
sion by honoring exceptional
work … (in) Arizona, New
Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and
El Centro, Calif.”
“Earthlight” explores the
Lunar Greenhouse project, a
closed-system food-produc-
tion program with broad im-
plications both in space and
here on Earth.
“Lunar Greenhouse is the
third version of this particular
project,” Sheehy said. “The
work has been going on for
almost a decade. It started as
small project to get food to
