Allen is a senior at South Side High School. He is a second year graphics design student, and his work ethic shows through in all he does. Whether he is playing varsity soccer for South Side, bussing tables at the Hoppy Gnome, or creating our next product design, Allen gives nothing less than 100% effort.
We asked Allen about working at Scherer Resources:
"Hi, my name is Allen Marquez. Being a part of Scherer Resources has really enhanced my graphic design skills. Not only that, but my traditional art skills as well as teaching me real life skills and that managing your time is important. Learning more about the marketing industry here at Scherer Resources truly inspired me to continue my career and become the best I can be. To see your art work be made to actual products is always a good feeling. Especially when the products are being used for a good cause. I plan on pursuing my career after high school at IUPUI and continue the path on achieving my life long goals. "
We often tell our students to be a butterfly: to gain strength and confidence in the struggle to grow. Allen incorporated a large butterfly into the ribbon that represents our program and our efforts towards inclusion awareness. The little butterflys represent our students as they go out in the world, employed and integrated into the community.
We thank Allen for all of his help and efforts so far this year and look forward to what he comes up with in the future. Stay tuned to our website, Facebook, and other social media platforms to see more of Allen's, and our other interns' work. We know you won't be disappointed.
