UH College of Technology instructors Can Le and Harold Halliday accompanied 24 Graphic communications students from Dubiski Career High School who were delegates and competitors at the State Leadership and Skills Conference. Sponsored by SkillsUSA, the conference was held in Corpus Christi, Texas, March 26 – 28. Halliday and Le served as consultants in the development of the competition and participated in the judging.
"We greatly appreciate the support from the University of Houston, PIA MidAmerica, Canon, and JourneyEd," said Gloria Trevino who teaches graphic communications at Dubiski. "As advisors we pour our hearts and souls into our students, and when we have industry professionals show the same interest, it means so much more."
Several of the students won awards and placed in several categories including advertising design, graphic communications, graphic imaging, American spirit, occupational health and safety, screen-printing, and t-shirt design.
"The University of Houston’s presence added incredible validity to the contest and we look forward to making this partnership an annual tradition," Trevino said. "Together we are paving the way for a strong future for the future’s printing and graphics professionals."
