Greeting cards featuring scenic images from around Wyoming will be sold this holiday season to help provide support for veterans of United States Special Operations Forces (SOF).
Students in the Northwest College Photography Theme Seminar class who created the cards will donate 25 percent of the net proceeds to The Station Foundation, a Bozeman, Montana, based non-profit organization which provides programs and support for SOF personnel and their families. Founded in 2011, The Station Foundation provides peer networking and group activities to help returning military veterans transition back into civilian life.
Advised by NWC’s Digital Studio Specialist Jayne Johnson, students worked to photograph and collect images of local landscapes to represent each of the four seasons. The imagery on the cards is the work of Heather Clarkson of Powell, Amanda Johnson of Gillette and Emily Myers of Worland. Students from Montana include Ashlyn Archer of Laurel, Emmy Drake of Billings, Jordan Eidem of Hardin and Travis Russell of Nye.
The five by seven inch cards have a glossy printed image on the front and a blank interior. The photographer’s credit and a short description of the Photography Theme Seminar course are printed on the back. Variety packs of eight cards with white envelopes cost $10 and feature two images from each of the four seasons.
Cards can be purchased by contacting Jayne Johnson at 307-754-6183 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Samples of the cards are on display in the NWC Mail Services Room, located in the Orendorff Building Room 118, Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
