Mrs. Hopper's Broadcasting students visited their dual credit partner, Huntington University. Students enjoyed a day filled with hands-on activities, learning about HU's Digital Media Arts Program (Broadcasting, Film, Animation, and VR), screening films and helping critique HU student work. It was a day packed full of fun and developing friendships with HU's amazing DMA professors.

Our awesome Culinary Arts & Fashion and Textiles students participated in the Fine Arts Festival in the Performing Arts Center last night. The Advanced Culinary Arts students prepared & served scrumptious appetizers including chicken salad croissants, bacon wrapped pork tenderloin medallions, spinach artichoke dip, bruschetta, and an assortment of desserts. The Fashion & Textiles students sumbitted many of their recent projects to be displayed during the festival including clothing, pillows, bags, and more. A lot of work went into making this festival happen and we appreciate the time & effort these students & staff members put into making this event happen. What a wonderful evening it was full of student talent!
As an added bonus, the culinary students served leftover goodies from last night right outside the Blue Apron for students & staff both to enjoy! We are so proud of our senior culinary students & wish them the best of luck after graduation!!
