Student Achievments: Katy Ellenich, Elizabeth LaRouche, and Morgan Nelson

Katy, Morgan, and Liz in the costume shop--their home away from home.
Three VPA students will be presenting at the USITT (United States Institute for Theatre Technology) Conference in March 2013

Elizabeth LaRouche, Katy Ellenich, & Morgan Nelson have each had their abstracts accepted for the USITT Costume Design & Technology Commission's Poster Session to be presented at the USITT Conference in Milwaukee, March of 2013.

This poster session is a professional session comprised mostly of faculty and professional costume designers and technicians. All entries were blind juried so it was not known by the jurors that these students were all from Michigan Tech, nor that they were students at all!

This is Elizabeth's second year in a row, a rarity. Also, never has a single institution had as great a representation in the session in its 18-year history.

Congratulations, Elizabeth, Katy, & Morgan!
