FRISCO, TX — The goal of any artist is for their work to leap off the page and affect the world, and that’s what makes Lindsey Morrison our Class Act of the Week, brought to you by Time Warner Cable.
Lindsey is a senior at Frisco Centennial and she’s an avid graphic designer.
“I’ve always loved art and just anything creative,” she said.
And her passion for art and graphic design has spurred her to some great things -- from designing a flag for the Frisco Rotary Club that will be traded with other Rotary Club flags around the world to a poster that might save lives!
“This is a poster that won the ‘Driving the Message’ contest, which is sponsored by State Farm, and that is one of my favorite projects from this year,” Lindsey said, showing the poster. “And it raises awareness for teen drivers.”
Lindsey has also started her own t-shirt company, Texas Tees 4 Tees. While it just started as a project in Frisco ISD’s “Independent Study and Mentorship” program, it morphed into a serious business, supporting a great cause.
“When you buy a shirt you help to give a shirt to someone in need specifically in South Dallas through the Cornerstone Clothes Closet,” Lindsey explained.
In the fall, she’s off to Texas A&M to major in marketing and graphic design and already she’s majoring in maturity to follow her dream, making the tough decision to quit Volleyball to focus on her artwork.
“Take as many opportunities as you can, even if you’re hesitant about them because I know I was extremely hesitant to quit volleyball for graphic design or sign up for ISM, but looking back it’s because I made those kind of ‘iffy’ decisions that my years are so memorable and I’m so happy I made those decisions.”
Hey everybody, that wraps up our Class Acts for this school year. It’s been a blast bringing you all the best and brightest from North Texas!
Now go enjoy summer break, see y’all next fall!
