Metro Tech Graphic Design student designs t-shirt for 2017 SkillsUSA National Leadership Conference

Metro Tech Graphic Design Program student Lizet Vasquez designed a t-shirt for the SkillsUSA state contest that allows Career and Technology students to utilize their curriculum – and her design was chosen to be worn by 400 competitors and seen by more than 16,000 people at the 2017 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference this summer in Kentucky.

Vasquez is a first-year Metro Tech student from ASTEC Charter High School who had no graphic design experience prior to enrolling at Metro Tech. Graphic Design teacher Roxanne Shively described Vasquez as an exceptional student that serves in multiple leadership roles and was recently inducted into the National Technical Honor Society.

“I enrolled in the Graphic Design Program to explore my interest in design, and discovered that I also have talent, which came as a surprise to me. I’m honored that my shirt design - inspired by Oklahoma geography - was chosen,” Vasquez said.
