SUN Tech Advertising Art & Design Students Support Art Education Through The YMCA Arts Center

Torrey Smith (far left), 2008 graduate of the SUN Tech Art program visited the school to accept a donation for the Sunbury YMCA Art Center. Students in the Advertising Art & Design program donated $268 as a result of money collected through Dress Down Days. Every first and third Friday, students paid $2 and were permitted to wear the dress down day t-shirt with jeans instead of their typical uniform. The t-shirt design was an in-class competition using Adobe Illustrator and won by student Victoria Clark (Lewisburg School District, shown holding the right side of the banner). Instructor, Kim McBride (2nd from left) shows the dress down day shirt.
