PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace alumni continued their success on the silver screen this summer, with graduate Delaney Yeager winning a 2015 Primetime Emmy at the awards ceremony on Sunday.

Yeager, a member of the class of 2013, received the award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Yeager graduated from Pace School of Performing Arts and achieved what television writers strive for their entire careers: the coveted statuette and symbol of excellence in television, and the chance to work on a television series of cultural influence and importance.

She is the youngest writer hired in The Daily Show’s 16-year history. Prior to writing for the popular show, Yeager was a staff writer for The Sundance Channel’s The Approval Matrix with Neal Brennan.
