STATE COLLEGE — South Hills School of Business & Technology is proud to announce that Kayla Malloy, a 2nd-year student of the Graphic Arts program, and Carson Bechdel, a 1st-year Graphic Arts student, have been awarded the 2020 Kari Schlegel Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship was created by the family of Kari Lynn Schlegel, a 2012 graduate of the South Hills Graphic Arts program whose life and untimely death in 2016 touched the lives of many.

The faculty members of the Graphic Arts program were tasked with choosing the award recipient by identifying a current student who exhibits the traits that Kari had when she was a student as follows:

  • Enthusiastic with a positive spirit
  • Optimistic outlook and attitude that helps to motivate others
  • Dedication and commitment to personal growth, both as a graphic designer and as a person
  • Love and appreciation for both graphic arts and the South Hills Graphic Arts program

Jim Colbert, Graphic Arts Instructor, said, “Kayla truly embodies the attributes this scholarship was designed to promote. Her work is outstanding, but, just as importantly, her attitude is always positive and upbeat. Carson shows great promise as a first-year student, focused and with a good work ethic, as well as an understated sense of humor that has lightened the mood in the classroom more than once. Both students are true assets to the program and show great potential for successful careers as graphic designers.”

South Hills School of Business & Technology also memorialized Kari Schlegel by naming the school’s virtual art gallery in her honor.
