Scholars attending Wilson Alternative School and Virtual Academy were recently highlighted by the Vindicator about their experience learning Adobe Illustrator. The initiative is in conjunction with Youngstown State University and spearheaded by YCSD ELA teacher Colleen Cegan. 

Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphics editor and design software. Learning Adobe is a specific skill set scholars can take with them in their future careers.  Way to go, scholars!
