ROCK HILL, S.C. -- The j. Charles Walker & John Brett Buchanan Foundation has recognized a Winthrop University student for her intricate design work.
Visual communication and design major Kaylee Savannah Holder received an honorable mention from the foundation’s 4th University & College Designers Association (UCDA) educational scholarship. In previous years, only one winner was recognized. But this year, the judges were so impressed with Holder’s work that they created an honorable mention category, said Department of DesignChair Chad Dresbach, Holder’s mentor.
Holder, from Taylors, S.C., received a recognition certificate and a $250 award.
j. Charles Walker and John Brett Buchanan, the foundation’s namesakes, created the scholarship in 2008 to encourage those in the visual communication/design field. Both are long-time UCDA members and Kent State University emeritus professors of visual communications design.
To apply, students must be either a junior, senior or fifth year (five-year bachelor degree) student at a qualifying institution majoring in visual communication design. They must submit a portfolio of creative work, along with a recommendation letter and resume.
