Halifax Community College (HCC) Advertising and Graphic Design student Tim Archer recently won a cover design contest sponsored by the North Carolina Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NCASFAA). The organization held the contest to see who could create/design its fall conference program cover. Archer's work was chosen and he received a monetary prize for his efforts.

Archer will graduate in May 2008 with an Associate in Advertising and Graphic Design. Outstanding academically, Archer is serving as a tutor for computer, graphics and general interest students who are studying Dreamweaver 8. He also has custom art for sale online.

During his stay at HCC, Archer assisted with the staging of the 33-year retrospective art show last fall for the Advertising and Graphic Design program's 40th anniversary celebration. He has also designed logos for several special events and some departments on campus.

NCASFAA's fall conference was held in October. Goals of the organization include developing and strengthening the professional competency of student financial aid administrators by offering training opportunities, promoting the enhancement of student financial aid programs by staying informed about legislative actions, and facilitating communication among educational institutions, agencies and sponsors of student assistance funds through the exchange of ideas and information.
