Landrum High School and Swofford Career Center student Ashley Pack was recently announced as the winner of the Upstate Youth Alliance Logo Contest. The Upstate Youth Alliance is a division of the Upstate Workforce Investment Board, which promotes youth development through education, training and employment. Currently three programs are being funded: Achieve, Palmetto Youth Connections and YouthStop.

“Ashley is a very bright and talented young lady. She is one of our best students and will be continuing her education at Anderson University next year in art education. With Ashley’s ability and determination, she will be successful at anything she chooses,” said H.B. Swofford Career Center Director Scott Simpkins.

All completing graphic arts students in the tri-county area of Spartanburg, Cherokee and Union were invited to participate. A completer is a student who enrolls and completes a program by taking all of the classes offered in that program. There are three classes in commercial graphics.
