Beaver County Career & Technology Center Student Accolades

Brooklyn Colon, 11th Grader

Brooklyn Colon is a first-year student in the Graphic Arts and Printing program at the Beaver County CTC. Brooklyn’s logo was picked by Knock ‘em Down Tree and Crane Service as part of their rebranding. The Graphic Arts students worked with the owners of Knock ‘em Down to better understand their creative needs, those meetings helped students to better visualize how to improve their existing designs. Brooklyn’s design was one of two picked and received $150.00 from Knock ‘em Down for the design. Brooklyn’s design will be part of their new uniform and some marketing materials.

Congratulations Brooklyn!


The Highmark Caring Place Poster Contest

In November, students had the opportunity through the High School and Middle School Guidance Department and the Highmark Caring Place to enter a Poster Contest to support all students’ grief awareness! The High School and Middle School Art Department, Mrs. Orth and Mrs. Ax worked hard with all students to help make this opportunity possible! As a result, Lydia Mycyk’s poster was chosen as the 2021 Caring Team Poster Contest Winner for our High School category and High School students Angelina Probst and Ricardo Lopez were chosen as Finalist! Lydia’s poster will be replicated and printed next year as part of our Children’s Grief Awareness Day school resources and shared through the Middle and High School Guidance Department! Lydia, Angelina and Ricardo will be recognized for their contributions to the Caring Place for their posters! On behalf of the Ambridge Area School District and Guidance Department in collaboration with the Caring Place, please give a round of applause and congratulations to Lydia, Angelina and Ricardo for your amazing artwork and contributions to the Caring Place!

Congratulations Lydia Mycyk, Angelina Probst, and Ricardo Lopez!
