Congratulations and Good Luck to entrants of the Center for Safety and Change Poster Contest

Earlier this month, representatives from the Center for Safety and Change came in to present to the Drawing and Painting, Art IV and Design and Illustration students.  Students learned valuable information on issues surrounding domestic/relational violence against both females and males.

Students were then invited to submit work to the annual poster contest calling for an end to this societal problem.

Congratulations to Sarah Placide, Alexa Laquidara, Haley Mendick, Melanie Gatchalian, Grace Chang, Alexandra Wang, Rebecca Straniere, Grace McInerney, Samantha Sobel, Samantha Pollak, Tianna Powell, Anaya Velez, Kaitlyn Fudge.
