Art teacher Todd Yancy officially opens a newly outfitted computer room at University City High School in a recent ceremony. WashUCity, a mentoring program that connects visual communications majors from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts with high-school students studying graphic design, raised about $30,000 to fund a dozen new computer stations. The program was launched in 2002 by Heather Corcoran, assistant professor of visual communications, and local designer Traci Moore, a University City High alumna and chair of the Municipal Commission on Arts & Letters.
