- Congratulations to Ms. Sally Ann Swearingen for receiving a grant from The Planning and Visual Education Partnership (PAVE). In the past, SFA programs have marketed students by hosting an annual senior design show on campus. With the economy's present state and location of the campus, most firms are not visiting the campus for recruitment; th...erefore SFA programs must be more resourceful. With the grant, a new technology, Transportable Digital Portfolios, can be created. With this advancement, the exhibit can be transported to high schools, community colleges, design trade shows, and other venues to promote student success. Implementing this tool will also help with the teaching and practicing of being green. This program will impact 90 students per year.
