Dodge City Community College Foundation Announces Second Annual Christmas Card Design Contest Winners
Dodge City Community College Foundation announced today that Gisella Herrera is the first placewinner of the 2014 student Christmas card design contest. The second place winner is JoEllen Taylor, and third place goes to Adella Goldworm.
Gisella is from Dodge City and a freshman majoring in Art at Dodge City Community College. She aspires to be a professional graphic designer and one day design characters and illustrations for a large company. Her artistic style is influenced by surrealism, figurative and realism or “comic realism.”
“We’re very proud of all our art students at DCCC, and anytime we have the opportunity to show the community their talent, we jump at the chance,” stated Jennifer Nolan, Assistant Professor of Art. “All three of the winners are great examples of the talented students we have at DCCC. All three have bright futures ahead of them.”
“Gisella will receive $250 and 50 personalized Christmas cards, JoEllen will receive $150 and Adella will receive $100,” according to Roger Proffitt, DCCC Foundation Director. “The Foundation is extremely happy to be sending out a very unique student designed Christmas card again this year, and we want to thank all the students for their entries and their hard work.”
“The Final Friday Art Reception & Awards has been scheduled for Friday December 5th in the DCCC Little Theater,” stated Devlin Goldworm, Associate Professor of Art. “Please come see what our art students have done this semester. The student art show will be open until Wednesday, December 17th.”
The DCCC Foundation is also making Gisella’s Christmas card available for purchase. We are selling them in packages of 10 for $10. Please call the Foundation at 620-227-9249 to place your order. Cards are also available in the DCCC Bookstore.
The DCCC Foundation will hold a Christmas card contest again next year with cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. It is open to all DCCC students, in any major, enrolled for the 2015 fall semester.
