CTE Graphic Arts teacher, Andrea Boettner, Coleman High School senior, Ethan Davis, along with Ethan’s parents and a fellow classmate, visited the Clare County Animal Shelter early on December 3 to chat with Animal Control Officer, Rudi Hicks and get the grand tour.
Davis is the student behind the shelter’s new logo.
During his time at CTE and the Clare Gladwin Career Center, Davis has made logos for the Recovery Court, Community That Cares and now the Animal Shelter and the shelter volunteers.
“He’s the logo man,” Boettner said with a smile.
This logo is part of Davis’s second year project in the Graphic Arts class.
“I knew they (the shelter) wanted a new logo,” Davis said, “so I up and jumped on it.”
It took Davis a whole three to four days to create the logo that is now the shelter’s Facebook profile photo and is being featured in Christmas ornaments, made and being sold by the shelter volunteers to help raise more money for the shelter.
Davis’s and his class’s contributions will not end with the creation of the two logos, but they are also planning on ordering and selling “Furever Friends” plastic bracelets to help raise extra money for the shelter as well as helping out with fundraisers, adoption and donation events with the volunteers.
Boettner said that with her classes she likes to promote student leadership and help in any way they can as a class.
ACO Hicks couldn’t stop thanking Davis for the wonderful logo and also for all the help he and his class are looking forward to doing for the shelter over this school year.
Davis also got a lot of advice from Hicks about college. Davis told Hicks that he is hoping to go to college for Graphic Design, but could change paths along the way.
The shelter and it’s volunteers look forward to using Davis’s logos for various events and fundraisers.
