If you missed the big event, click here for more photos and video interviews with our amazing students. Their designs were simply beautiful. But it’s the technology, combined with creativity, ingenuity and hard work that makes this event truly special. All of the dresses were custom made, sewn and printed, as were the bow ties. They had special help from the kind people at Immersion Graphics, who helped them “paint” the bow ties using a technique called hydro-dipping. The end result was simply stunning.
We could not be prouder of junior Jake Martin, who was featured in the paper and on the news recently for his ability to play varsity baseball, and play it well, with an underdeveloped hand since birth. But for those of us who have known Jake a long time, we know that he has never let his hand slow him down or hold him back in any area of his life.
