Hamilton High School junior Kaleigh Hall and senior Jamie Destache created the winning logo for the 2011 American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Sussex-Menomonee Falls-Pewaukee.
For the third year, the American Cancer Society partnered with classes taught by Hamilton graphic arts teacher Tom Schlueter. Students were asked to create logos and taglines incorporating Relay For Life and the beach theme into their designs. The Relay For Life planning committee chose designs created by Hall and Destache.
“The students do a fantastic job creating original, thoughtful, fun and decorative designs and taglines every year,” said Erin Starck, American Cancer Society community relations manager. “The committee had a difficult time narrowing it down to the top two.”
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a fundraiser that provides community members with the chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease. Teams camp out at Menomonee Falls High School and each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.
Opening ceremonies for the 16th Annual Relay For Life of Sussex-Menomonee Falls-Pewaukee event will take at 6 p.m. on June 17. For information about the event or to see the logo created by the Hamilton students, please visit www.relayforlife.org/sussex-menomoneefallswi.
