South Hills Community News Release

STATE COLLEGE — South Hills School of Business & Technology’s Graphic Arts (GA) program recently held their 11th annual gallery show, “Infusive Design,” at the Art Alliance of Central PA in Lemont. This event was started in 2006 by GA Program Coordinator, Ray Liddick, and is designed to showcase work created by members of the graduating GA class. This year’s selections included a variety of projects ranging from posters, publication designs, and illustrations to 3-D packaging designs and advertising campaigns. All work on display was created as part of the project-oriented Graphic Arts two-year associate in specialized technology degree program.

Graphic Arts instructor, Jim Colbert, commented, “Infusive Design is a wonderful opportunity for the students to select and display the 'best of the best' of their work. It’s truly a delight from the faculty perspective to watch the growth of these students over the course of two years, and it’s very rewarding to see their enthusiasm and watch them shine during this special evening.”

Kari Lynn Schlegel

March 4, 1992—December 15, 2016

Kari Schlegel was born in March 1992 and graduated from South Hills in September 2012.

The Kari Lynn Schlegel Memorial Gallery is named in memory of Kari Schlegel, a lifelong Bellefonte resident and 2012 graduate of the Graphic Arts program at South Hills.

Kari was often the exclamation point in any story about the Class of 2012. Her effervescent good mood, enthusiasm, and seemingly endless supply of optimism and positive spirit was infusive, lighting up the classroom.

Kari (right) is shown with her beloved sister, Mindy.

Her classmates still laugh at the memory of Kari wearing her bunny slippers on the Graphic Arts field trip to New York City. Groan-worthy puns and jokes? Kari had a volume of them. She delighted in sharing stories and photos of her four beloved cats as well as trivia and tales of Harry Potter and Disney World. She was a rare combination of innocence, maturity, trust, and hope. She was filled with a joy of life and an unconditional love for her friends, her family, her pets… and people she just met. That was Kari Schlegel.

Kari dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow for the South Hills “BooFest” Halloween party in 2012.

She loved her school, even coming back to audit several GA classes after graduating. Kari also particularly enjoyed returning to South Hills every summer to perform as part of the Music Picnic Series with the Bellefonte Community Band.

Kari died December 15, 2016, in a tragic automobile accident. It’s a loss everyone who knew her still feels. In the end, Kari truly lived her life with passion and joy, treating others as she wanted to be treated: with love, compassion, and respect.
