Two Sayville sophomores in the Mr. Cross’ Advanced Computer Graphics class responded to a design assignment with a banner idea—literally! Will Folks and Allison Neumeyer designed and created two 8’ by 16’ banners in-house to highlight the recent good news about their high school.
Again this year, Sayville High School was featured in Newsweek as one of America’s Top High Schools in 2016, ranking 239th out of 15,819 schools nationwide In addition this year for—a fifth consecutive year—Sayville High School has been named a New York State Reward School.
Such accolades deserved attention and the students approached their assignment with this in mind. As they were both proficient in Adobe Illustrator CS4, Will and Allison furthered their design skills while working on their class projects. The results were impressive. Mr. Cross and High School Principal Ron Hoffer were delighted that Will and Allison’s banners could be displayed outdoors and above the High School gymnasium for everyone to see. Mr. Cross added his specific compliments for the assistance given by Sayville’s Buildings and Grounds Assistant Superintendent and the High School custodian. “It was a pleasure working with Stephen Koepper and Rob Selkirk as they were instrumental with framing and installing the banners at the High School.” Most of all, congratulations, Will and Allison, for your banner ideas!
