A Parkway High School student won a competition that designed a logo for a local company.

With the support of BPSTIL Principal Jayda Spillers and BPSTIL Graphic Design teacher John Johnson, Parkway High School tenth grader Anne Howard won a competition hosted by Bossier Parish School Board District 5 Representative Adam Bass.

Bass enlisted the help of some talented students with the graphic design program at BPSTIL to create a logo that will serve as the new face of Bear Claw Properties.

“I was talking to John when I first got the School Board seat and he was telling me what all his students do. When he mentioned logos, I realized that I had a company that didn’t have a logo. It fit in their curriculum, so we decided to kinda get some ideas from the students and let them design it,” said Bass.

Howard’s design was voted as the winner.

“I’m surprised that I won. I didn’t think that I would be the winner,” said Howard.

Voting occurred from a Facebook post that Bass posted.

“Anne Howard is the name to look out for. Anne Howard is a triple threat. She is certified and will build you an amazing logo,” said Bass.
