On February 11th, friends, family and HSFI staff celebrated the vibrant life of Ms. Lakisha Youngblood. All came together to share their fondest memories. Ms. Youngblood will forever be remembered for her compassion, dedication and kindness. While Ms. Youngblood may not be with us, her memory will live on in the hearts, minds and talents of all HSFI students via a special design competition. As Ms. Youngblood was passionate about bright, exciting prints and textiles, students were asked to design print concepts and create collections featuring the work. The two winners, Jessica Samuel and Leilah Fortuna, will be able to attend special Surface and Textile Design courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology. These opportunities were made possible by the generous contributions provided by staff, friends and family.
