Hayley Butcher, Williamsburg High School graduate and student of the Graphic Arts program at South Hills School of Business & Technology, has been awarded the 2018 Kari Schlegel Memorial Scholarship Award.
Local illustrator, Jason Lenox, visited the main campus of South Hills in State College to speak to Graphic Arts students about his career and creative process. His sci-fi and fantasy artwork has appeared in Dark Horse Comics and various role-playing games, and he participates in several national comic conventions.
Words like “bubbly,” positive,” “outgoing,” and “kind-hearted,” were just some of what Kari Schlegel’s friends had to say about her. They also said it’s fitting that an online art exhibit created by people affiliated with South Hills School of Business & Technology was recently named in her memory.
South Hills School of Business & Technology is launching the Kari L. Schlegel Memorial Gallery as part of the school’s website to showcase visual artwork, photography, illustration, and design created by current students, alumni, and lifelong learning participants. The gallery is named in honor of Schlegel, a 2012 graduate of the Graphic Arts program who passed away in December 2016.
A big win in the local music scene prompted one South Hills student to reach out to three classmates from other programs for help getting the word out about his band. Find out more about their collaboration in this Student Spotlight video interview. by South Hills Communications
