Other big congratulation to Jorge Ramos, Miami Dade College - Padrón Campus, for being chosen as the second of two FCSAA Publications Division Students of the Month for June! Jorge was also nominated by his advisor, Emily Sendin.
Here is what we learned about Jorge through Emily: "Jorge joined Urbana in Fall 2019 and since then has been an active member attending all meetings in person and online. As Art Director, Jorge carefully listened to the needs of the layout team, working in close collaboration with the editors-in-chief to achieve a cohesive end product. From very early on, he began designing the cover, which had many iterations until its final form. Jorge’s gentle disposition was a breath of fresh air for our team. He was able to accept constructive criticism and consequently take the design of volume 13 to a higher level. Without Jorge’s creative vision, Urbana’s volume 13 would not be what it is today. He proved that he is able to be a team player as well as lead when necessary. Urbana’s staff is fortunate to have Jorge at the helm of creative direction, and we are excited to witness his imagination once again come to life in Urbana’s volume 14.
Throughout his first year at Miami Dade College, Jorge has participated in several events to support his community through clubs and honorary societies such as TriBeta, Phi Theta Kappa, and Yes! Club. As a Yes! Club member, he volunteered at beach cleanups to help the community clean up the beaches to protect the environment. Through TriBeta, he worked at Mina's Events & Mini Farm caring for the animals and cleaning and organizing the farm. Moreover, with PTK, he participated in a series of events related to cancer awareness such as Cancer Out Guinness World Record attempt to create a human caduceus. In the subsequent festival, he helped encourage people suffering from this disease and raise funds for the cure. In addition, he volunteered to organize and distribute food baskets to low-budget families through FarmShare. Jorge has been an integral member of his campus and the local community."
Congratulations to this remarkable student, Jorge Ramos, our other Publications Student of the Month. Thank you again to Ms. Sendin for her nominations and continued support in the FCSAA.
