High school students design banners for downtown Greenville

GREENVILLE – Main Street Greenville is proud to announce the selected designs and artists for the winter banners. These banners will be displayed in downtown Greenville from November through February.

The Greenville High School Career Art Class, taught by Jane Cleary, was asked to submit designs for the winter banners that would reflect the character of downtown. Main Street Greenville representatives Betty Birt, Lauren Henry and Deanna York were impressed with the talent and creativity of Mrs. Cleary’s students.

“The students in the Career Art Class at GHS are an extremely talented bunch,” stated Birt, chairman of the committee. “It was difficult to choose only three designs from the many submissions.”

The students chosen to create the artwork for the winter banners were Tara Guillozet, Maggie Suter and Makayla Robbins. Miss Guillozet’s artwork represents the light posts in the historic downtown area. Miss Suter’s artwork represents the iconic courthouse and Miss Robbins’ artwork represents the fountain on the circle.

A fourth banner will be proudly displayed in downtown Greenville along with the three designed by the high school students, one that announces Greenville as Ohio Magazine 2012/2013 Best Hometown.

All banners were printed by Dustin Nealeigh, owner of Nealeigh Design Group now located on North Broadway.

The American Legion in Greenville and The Elks each contributed generously to this banner project. Additional sponsors are being sought at this time.

Main Street Greenville is an organization committed to stimulating and supporting revitalization efforts, historic preservation and economic growth in historic downtown Greenville. Visit the website for more information on this program and more,
