The potential is evident in 2011 Cactus Shadows High School graduate Zach Vesledahl who took what he learned about sound engineering in the classroom and turned it into an internship at Universal Studios. The hope is apparent in senior Laura Morton, a student with aspiration of making art part of her career. While her talents once were limited to drawing and painting her newly developed computer skills have increased her spectrum of options. “I came into this class after failing technology in eighth grade,” she said. “I started messing around with Power Point and then I started learning Photo Shop and now I’m making graphics for authors.” Morton’s work earned distinction when her poster was chosen for last year’s Desert Foothills Film Festival.
