GREENWICH, Conn. -- Draggan Mihailovich, a CBS television news producer, will be the keynote speaker at The Stanwich School's second annual commencement ceremony on Thursday.
All members of The Stanwich School's Class of 2015 have been accepted to four-year colleges or universities.
Mihailovich, a Stanwich School parent, was invited by the Class of 2015, and class members are delighted he was able to accept.
A widely recognized producer and writer, Mihailovich has worked as a producer for the CBS News program “60 Minutes” for 17 years. He has won 11 Emmy Awards during his time at “60 Minutes” and at CBS Sports, where he worked previously as the chief Olympic researcher and the senior feature producer for the Olympics.
One of Mihailovich’s Emmy Awards was for a feature on Louis Zamperini that aired during the 1998 Nagano Olympics. That 35-minute story became the inspiration for Laura Hillenbrand’s best-selling book, “Unbroken.”
Getting his start in the network television business at the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics in Yugoslavia with ABC Sports, Mihailovich worked six Olympics for ABC and CBS.
A native of Chapel Hill, N.C., Mihailovich received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of North Carolina.
