STUDIO ART & DESIGN Connects with Bolivian students

Students in the Studio Art & Design program were part of a Memory Project event that connected students in Boliva with students in other parts of the world. Studio Art & Design received photos of Bolivian students and were asked to create portraits of them. These portraits were sent back to Bolivia and handed out to the students there.

Students in the Excel TECC Auto Collision program housed in the Willoughby-Eastlake school district are involved in a project that is part of a collaboration between district and Eastside Department Group Enforcement to convert an ambulance once belonging to South Euclid Fire Department into a hostage negotiation command center.
EDGE is a regional SWAT team consisting of officers from Euclid, South Euclid, Shaker Heights, Beachwood and University Heights.
Students started working with Officer Joe Di Lillo of South Euclid Police Department and Patrolman Ben Feltoon of University Heights Police Department — both are hostage negotiators with EDGE — in December on the project, which is expected to be completed within a couple of weeks.
