kelly-fosterToday’s Champion is Kelly Foster! Foster is a graphic design teacher at Cedar Ridge High School. In the videos, Peter Nguyen and Ryan O’Malley, students at Cedar Ridge High School, talk about why Mr. Foster is their champion.

“Before taking this class, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my future, but Mr. Foster helped me realize that graphic design is a great creative outlet that can be very fun,” Nguyen said. “Mr. Foster showed me that hard work pays off and helped me realize my potential. He has allowed me to become a better designer and individual,” O’Malley said.
