When searching for a gift to leave behind to the college, the 2012 Senior Class Gift Committee decided to start from what everyone of its peers does best, their art.
The committee decided to complete a project called Epilogue. Their members collected works from their fellow students and silent auctioned them at the CCAD Spring Art Sale. All of the proceeds were then donated to the CCAD scholarship fund.
At the senior picnic, hosted by President Denny Griffith, Chavilah Bennett, the chair of the committee, and fellow Senior Class Gift committee members presented a class banner to President Griffith to represent their gift. Signed by the members of the class of 2012 and featuring the class’s slogan (go amaze), the banner will hang at all of the group’s future alumni gatherings.
“Not only is this a representation of our gift, but it is also a signed promise to keep in touch with our peers and with the school,” Bennett said.
“I repeat this message a lot, but donating to the scholarship fund is vital for our creative community,” Griffith said. He asked students to raise their hands if they received a scholarship and look around. The students were able to see, that the majority of students in attendance received support from previous donations.
The 2012 Senior Gift Committee included, Sean Gorant (Advertising & Graphic Design), Natelise Loeb (Advertising & Graphic Design and Illustration), Aaron Roberts (Advertising & Graphic Design) Mark St. Romain (Advertising & Graphic Design), Nicky Smith (Advertising & Graphic Design), and Dion Utt (Fine Arts)
The 2012 graduating class will be accepting their diplomas on May 12 at the Ohio Theatre, and from there on they will truly go and amaze!
