Congratulations to This Year’s Recipient of the CAT Outstanding Achievement Award

Cally Hazzard is this year’s recipient of the coveted award for Outstanding Achievement in the Communication Arts Technology Program. Cally was the unanimous choice of the CATP faculty and was chosen among several worthy candidates.

In December, Cally completed her AAS degree in Communication Arts Technology with High Distinction. Her work has stood out as some of the best this program’s students have ever produced. Cally is one of the hardest-working students we’ve ever had the pleasure to teach. She goes all in on every project that comes her way and always does more than expected.

Cally says of our program, “The CAT program has reminded me of my roots—to once again value the joy of creating and of the wealth of inner resilience that we all possess. This experience truly changed my life, and I will carry it and the years of inspiration with me for as long as I live.”

Congratulations Cally. Very well done.
