  • Congratulations to Graphic Design students! 

    The CHS Graphic Design class, taught by Elena Flores, along with other young people throughout Washtenaw County, were asked by a group of researchers at The University of Michigan to design a logo for their new international network focusing on forests and climate change issues. The initiative is called Forests & Livelihoods: Assessment, Research, and Engagement (FLARE). The group's mission reflects issues of social and environmental sustainability and the role of forests in sustainability.

    Over 250 entries were submitted. All submissions were judged anonymously by a panel of professional designers and professors. CHS senior Alex Spranger won a $50 3rd Place award and freshman Logan Gorman won an Honorable Mention for their unique graphic designs. Elena and the students will be attending a ceremony at UM on Thursday March 17. 

    Congratulations Logan and Alex, as well as the other CHS graphic designers, for a job well done!!!!
