Earlier this year, I was asked to participate in High Tech North’s graphic design advisory committee. I specifically attended the breakfast and meeting at the school, learning about the incredible things the class is doing.
Under the leadership of Mr. Kevin Hawk, these students are being prepared to enter the work force, with a knowledge and understanding of graphic design and production. I was so pleased to see these young people (mostly high school students with a sprinkling of adults) engaging in the field and preparing to enter the work force.
While at the advisory meeting, the talk of a field trip came up and we offered to have them come visit our office, and tour the neighboring printing company, Presstige Printing, who happens to be in the same building. The day came today for us to give the tour and what a treat!
A group of about 15 students came for the tour. We started off with the best of breakfast snacks – Dunkin Donuts Munchkins – before moving on to see the digital machines, large presses, bindery, finally heading up stairs to see the graphic design area.
So many questions were asked and I could see the students were really learning a lot from seeing how their work would eventually translate into printed materials, etc.
A big kudos goes to Nick Weidenmiller and Dan Venditti for being co-hosts for the tour. They provided so much information.
Another big thanks goes to Derek Scott, my husband, who happens to run the digital printers, for taking our group photo and then printing copies for each student and Mr. Hawk before they left!
