NWIC Unveils Latest PrintFeb 15th, 1996 | By tcj | Category: 7-4: Wildlife Management, Tribal College News
Northwest Indian College Foundation has unveiled a dramatic serigraph print by artist Candy Solomon: Qw’ch’enech (the Lumni word for killer whale). Those who donate over $250 for the year receive the signed, limited edition, black and red print. The print has been a strong incentive to donors–including college employees–to give at that level, according to Carla Shafer, executive director of the foundation. As incentives to employees, the college also offers them foundation mugs for gifts of $50 a year and license plate holders for $100 a year. Nearly half–45 percent of college employees–support the college through payroll deductions.
Solomon, an alumna of NWIC, received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Communications from Western Washington University in 1994. She has also worked for the foundation since it was first organized in 1991. She is responsible for brochures, photographs, graphics, and all printed materials for the college and the foundation.
Northwest Indian College Foundation is a nonprofit organized to support the college, which was established on the Lummi Reservation at Bellingham, Washington, in 1978.
