Hope Academy Student Visit – September 17, 2019
Hope Academy is a local middle school that exists to serve students that are socio-economically disadvantaged. At least 80% of the student’s families have a household income that is near or below the federal poverty guidelines. Hope Academy currently serves grades 5-8th, with plans to add elementary grades in future years.
The team at Graphic Components want to help our local community to thrive so we made the decision to manufacture and donate a complete interior wayfinding sign project to the school. We completed the project in August 2019.
Today we were honored to have four 8th grade students together with the Head of School – Josh Mullins and Development Director – Susie Guhne visit us and show their appreciation of our donation by bringing coffee and donuts for our entire team! We gave the students a tour of our facility and taught them about what we do and gave them a brief introduction to the exciting world of signage. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the visit!
We have an on-going commitment to continue to manufacture and donate signs to the school for the benefit of the students with future signs focused on the areas of Inspiration and Recognition.
We also want to recognize the contribution made by Dan Scranton with ProUp Services who donated his time to design all of the interior signs.
