Columbus, OH - Michael Dinsio of Hopkins Printing accepted the Bradford School E.L.I.T.E. Award on Tuesday, November 9, 2010 at The Bradford School's portfolio review. The Bradford School is a higher education program in Columbus, OH that has offered quality training to its students in business, design and technology, culinary and healthcare since 1911. The Bradford E.L.I.T.E. Award is presented annually to an individual who demonstrates Excellence in Leadership, Integrity in Teaching and Encouragement of Emerging Graphic Designers.
Michael has displayed genuine involvement with the Bradford School over the past year and has found creative ways to broaden the students' experiences. Lisa McGaughey, Director of Career Services at the Bradford School, commented that Michael has "been a great partner with Bradford over the past year, such as by being a judge at last year's Portfolio Review event, participating in our Graphic Design Advisory Board meeting and mock interviews, as well as hosting shadow days, giving tours of Hopkins and reaching out to Bradford with freelance projects for the students. Bradford truly values everything Michael and Hopkins Printing do to work with us!"
Hopkins Printing recognizes the importance of collaborating with local organizations and individuals. It is through the unification of people and resources that Hopkins is able to create value for their clients by offering a complete graphics solution, something most traditional printers cannot provide. "We at Hopkins are always looking for opportunities to give back to the graphic arts community. It goes back to the second part of our mission statement; 'We will treat others as we would like to be treated for the benefit of our customers and our employee owners'" said award recipient Michael Dinsio.
