CADD Sweeps LEAF Scholarships!

Recently Excel TECC CADD Engineering juniors and Lakeshore Compact seniors participated in the L.E.A.F. Umbrella Project Engineering Challenge. Area high school students decorated unbrellas to be displayed at Great Lakes Mall. The mall needed devices to display the umbrellas from the mall rafters which is where the student engineers came in. They evaluated criteria and constraints, brainstormed solutions, and created prototypes until their designs met mall criteria and passed a safety inspection.In March, students worked with mall maintenance personnel to install their devices correctly to display the umbrellas. Area Engineers judged the devices and Excel TECC juniors won all three L.E.A.F. scholarships!

Congratulations to *Emma Burkey [First Place - $1,000]; *Jillian Gambino & *Isaiah Jackson [team-Second Place - $750]; and *Maddie Bogus [Third Place - $500].


HOPE SOARS: Beachwood Marketing Campaign

The Excel TECC Marketing students in the program at Beachwood high school are running a creative marketing campaign called Hope Soars Ohio. It is a visual art installation of 15'-20' inflatable butterflies to be displayed at locations throughout the Cleveland area from March 14 through May 15. The campaign recently kicked off at Rocket Mortgage Field House with the Cleveland Cavaliers as one of their sponsors. The butterfly idea follows on last years' Hope Blooms Ohio, and means to remind our community that we have the power to transform the world into a more positive place. Congratulations to the students on their hard work and hope-filled message!

2018 CADD Graduate is 2021 Cleveland State University Valedictorian

Congratulations to Justin Daher, 2018 CADD graduate, for his extraordinary success during his college years and as 2021 valedictorian at Cleveland State University. Click here to read the entire article on CSU's website.

JUSTIN DAHER

Washkewicz College of Engineering

Bachelor of Science, Mechanical Engineering with minor in Mathematics
Summa Cum Laude
Justin Daher’s CSU experience was anything but ordinary. Having gained earned college credits at Mayfield High School, Daher entered as a sophomore only to be thrown a curve ball. During spring break of 2019, he had a heart attack-like episode and was diagnosed with myocarditis—inflammation of the heart. Hospitalized for weeks and quarantined for more thereafter, he completed his semester from home with straight A’s while undergoing many procedures. An interning doctor’s ultrasound of Daher’s heart later identified a life-threatening diagnosis requiring open heart surgery. He returned to CSU in the fall of 2021 and still managed to graduate in three years. 
A benevolent family-first person, Daher cared for his younger sibling during his tenure, inspiring them to follow in his (and the family’s) footsteps by attending CSU as well. Powered by deep curiosity, Daher calls his invention-dedicated research endeavors “informal,” but he landed on a “geothermal dehumidifier” to harvest clean water from humid air. “The Daher Drywell” became his senior design project. Now in the patent process, Daher hopes those struggling to find fresh water worldwide will be able to put a low-cost version of the invention to good use. Daher was also behind the student-based petition initiative to get a “Pass/Fail” grading system implemented for CSU’s remote learning during the COVID-19 quarantine. He was inspired by a witnessing a friend’s deteriorating mental health during the pandemic. Proud member of the Math Club, Robotics Club and an honorary member of Baja SAE during his time at CSU, Daher is now employed at MAGNET as Operational Excellence Consultant.
“My journey was rough and intimidating, but I am very proud of what I was able to accomplish in such a short period of time, with such daunting circumstances,” said Daher. “I’d like to thank everyone for considering me for this honor. I was not aware that being a candidate was a possibility for me. I am greatly humbled.”

CONGRATULATIONS GOLD MEDAL POSTER DESIGN!


Last year, a number of students in the Interactive Media program entered poster designs into the Graphic Media Alliance's [GMA] Print Excellence Award contest/student category. The designs were developed as part of a Public Service Announcement campaign that centered on the goal of helping to motivate high school students to wear masks while the pandemic was in full swing in fall 2020, before vaccines were available. To emphasize the importance of PPE [Personal Protective Equipment] in allowing humans to do great things, the class launched a PSA poster campaign called. 'When i Wear My PPE, I Can...'
F
As a junior last year, Michael Wallace entered his poster 'When i Wear My PPE, i Can Explore the Final Frontier' - his poster won a First Place Gold Medal in the GMA student category. As there was not a ceremony last year, two representatives, Andrew Schall and Peter Aranavage, came to Mayfield high school recently to present Michael with his award. Congratulations Michael!Click here for more information on Graphics Media Alliance
