WARREN, MICH.  Kevin McCauley and Richard Pisarski, students in the media & communication arts program at Macomb Community, won first- and second- place, respectively, in a logo design contest sponsored by McLaren Macomb, a 288-bed acute care hospital in Mount Clemens, Mich. McCauley’s winning design is being featured  on McLaren T-shirts recognizing February as American Heart Month and Go Red for Women.

McCauley, who is completing an associate degree with specialties in design & layout, interactive web media and 3D animation, received a $500 cash award from McLaren Macomb and a matching $500 Macomb Community College scholarship.  Pisarski, who is working toward an associate degree with a specialty in design layout, received a $250 award from McLaren Macomb and a matching $250 Macomb scholarship.  Initially, McLaren Macomb had planned to recognize a sole winner, but, was so impressed with Pisarski’s design, the decision was made to award a second place. 

Macomb’s highly regarded media and communication arts program is designed to develop the creative, traditional, digital and multimedia skills required for job entry into a variety of media-related industries.  The program leads to an associate of applied science degree, offers seven areas of specialization and transfers to a number of universities for those who are interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree.
