2017 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!!!!!!

I have to apologize for not keeping up with our class blog! But fortunately I get to start it up with GREAT NEWS! The THMS RED ARMY sent two students to compete at the nATIONAL level back in June 2017. Nour Tanbal received a GOLD medal for shirt design representing the state of Arizona and Jonathan McCollough received silver for PIN design! There are only three overall design competitions and we sent two of the three. Both our students medaled in their perspective competitions against the top high school designers in the country! What a wonderful job both students and faculty members Jerald Zivic, Pete Pederson and Alex Callahan did representing the state of Arizona…Tucson High School and the RED ARMY graphic design program!

WE CAN SAY IT AGAIN…..”WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS”!!!!!!
