Alumni Board of Directors Holds Centennial T-shirt Design Contest for Students
Last fall, Ferrum College’s Alumni Board of Directors (ABOD) put out a call to all current Panther students inviting them to create artwork for a new Centennial T-shirt Design Contest. From a total of 15 entries, the ABOD Philanthropy Committee selected the top three designs, which were then voted on by the campus community and visitors during the Centennial Homecoming Celebration held in October.
Sophomore Tevin Flood, of Courtland, Va., created the winning design that was printed on T-shirts sold during the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival and through the campus bookstore. Funds collected from the T-shirt sales (minus the cost to purchase and print shirts) go directly into the newly established ABOD Endowed Scholarship Fund, which will be used to assist current and future Ferrum College students with costs associated with obtaining their degree.
