Want to hang with the cool kids…. you’re gonna need a portfolio!

JCC Scholarship Recipient Interview with Kathy Bobeck

Katherine Bobeck, First Year Student Interview

“I need money I should get a scholarship.” A few students in our department have been fortunate enough earn a scholarship for their studies. By talking to one of them, I learned more about them by a simple quiz. I found they also have a sense of humor. Here are the results from the first interview with Kathy Bobeck.

What made you choose Graphic Design/Fine Arts as a major, at Johnston Community College?

After 22 years of marriage & four kids later a house fire and the corporate cutbacks, I decided it was finally time to do what I have always wanted to do so here I am 44 and a freshman.

Are you enjoying your semester in Graphic Design/Fine Arts program at JCC?
I am absolutely loving it and learning a great deal.
If you could change anything about this department what would it be? 

To have a life drawing class. I have never had the good fortune to have someone pose for me, other than in a picture.

What do you prefer? Mark one
