The best part of the fiftieth anniversary was having the oppertunity to do whatever you want to help the school prepare. In hindsight, I wish I had done more to help with graphic design stuff and finished the MCChute project.
I would say that being able to work without guidelines is a skill that anyone has to have. If [insert name here] gets into ADV. Media Arts, they will be able to start and finish any project they want, as well a jillion different photography oppertunities.
