On Tuesday, Digital Media Technology at the Indiana County Technology Center held a Halloween bake sale in celebration of the fun and crafty holiday.

The bake sale was held to raise funds for the seniors’ Adobe Photoshop certification. Adobe Photoshop is a graphics editing program developed and published by Adobe Systems.

DMT students were asked to donate baked goods such as cookies, cupcakes, brownies and many more “ghostly goodies.” Students and staff from other program areas participated and purchased creative baked goods.

With the affordable treats ranging from a quarter to a dollar, they successfully raised more than $270.

Melaney Brubaker, instructor of DMT, excitedly announced, “This will be an annual event.”

She also said that her program plans to host other holiday bake sales such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day and others.

Students attend SkillsUSA conference

SkillsUSA, a national organization for Career & Technical Education students, is founded on the principle of leadership. Twenty SkillsUSA members from the ICTC were selected to attend the annual SkillsUSA Leadership Conference hosted at Seven Springs.

The conference was held from Wednesday through today. These students joined other student leaders from around the region during the conference.

The Leadership Conference promotes networking between peers, offers educational and character-building workshops, enhances community service awareness, builds professionalism, and provides students with memorable and fun teambuilding experiences.

Advisers Sandy Zulick and James Gould chaperoned the event.
