Student Expands Design Skills Through Community Service

CsabaCommunity service is part of being a student at Chatham. In fact, students are required to complete at least six hours of service prior to graduation. For junior Csaba Sperry, that meant putting his interest in art, design, and photography to good use. He volunteered to create a newsletter for Camphill Ghent residents highlighting the assisted living facility’s Spring Festival. More than just producing an informational guide of events, Csaba’s put thought into every aspect of his program. “I did a layout to match what was happening that week, picked a font that would go with Camphill, and organic colors to go with the pictures that matched the season and blended with the events.” Staff and residents were thrilled with the result, and Csaba got the pleasure of not only helping others in his community, but also of being recognized for a job well done.

Otto is "Above the Influence" Contest Winner

Sarah OttoSarah Otto is the winner of the CHS “Above the Influence” contest, which earned her an iPad Mini. The contest, sponsored by SADD and Columbia County Stop DWI, asked students to creatively express how they personally stay above the influence of drugs and alcohol. Sarah entered the contest because she liked the idea of it (she is active in SADD) and chose a poem to share how she stays above the influence because, as she said, “In a poem you can use one or two words to replace a sentence, which makes your message more direct." Sarah’s poem, Listen To Them, was selected as the winner by a panel of faculty members. You can read Listen To Them here...
