This summer recent graduate Samantha Francis competed in Advertising Design at National SkillsUSA in Louisville, Kentucky. She competed against 37 other students (all the first place winners in their respective states), and she placed 1st!!! In addition to her gold medal, she received $250 from the Graphic Arts Education Association and won several hundred dollars worth of art supplies and a $10,000 scholarship to a private art school in Louisville.
Thanks to Mark Edwards, Steve Hansen, and Jared Ferguson for making the trip possible. Thanks to Jamie Rees and Mark Edwards for fostering her art skills throughout her time at Provo High.
