South Hills Community News Release

LEWISTOWN — As part of their Management class, first-year Business Administration–Management & Marketing (BAMM) students at South Hills School of Business & Technology’s Lewistown Campus recently visited Lewistown Printworks. The company offers printing services ranging from banners and signs to business cards and forms.

Michelle and Caleb Fetter, owners of Lewistown Printworks, shared their personal backgrounds and an overview of how the business got started and has grown through the years. Several of the BAMM students have goals of starting their own businesses after graduation, and this tour gave them the opportunity to ask actual small business owners a wide array of questions that may not be found in a textbook.

Emily Wible, BAMM Instructor, said, “These students had the opportunity to see first-hand how a small business can succeed in our small hometown.”

Students were also given a behind-the-scenes look at the printing facility and learned about some of the equipment used in the production process. Michelle created a Choose Optimism design and gave them all a chance to print the graphic onto their own canvas bags.

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.
