Student Success Story

Former Graphic Design Student Designs New Logo
How can one single moment in someone’s life impact their future? For Carlos Lupian it did! He was heading down the wrong road and his path looked dim during his high school years, but soon that would all change. Carlos was introduced to the Regional Occupational Program’s Graphic Arts Occupations class held at the Wolfe Educational Center. He commented that if he had not taken this class he does not know what his future would have looked like.
Taking this class also allowed him to participate in the Student Organization VICA. While in VICA he was able to compete using his Public Speaking, Interviewing, Desktop Publishing, and design skills that he learned from his ROP Graphic Arts Occupations class.
Carlos successfully graduated from Le Grand High School in 1998. He is currently employed at the Merced County Office of Education (MCOE) for the Business Services Department as a Printing Technician. Carlos has been able to use his graphic art design skills in this position. He is sought out to design a variety of logos for the departments at MCOE. One specific design he recently recreated was Merced County ROP's logo. The department is very excited to begin using his creation on all promotional material. Carlos feels that he is able to be a positive role model to his family and other students he comes into contact with. He continuously encourages them to take advantage of the Regional Occupational Program, stay in school, and to further their education.
