Georgia High School
Installs Mark Andy Press
The Phoenix Challenge Foundation (PCF) an-
nounced the installation of a Comco Cadet in-line
flexo press from Mark Andy, St. Louis, Missouri, at
R.W. Johnson High School in Gainesville, Georgia.
The 7-inch, four-color Comco press was installed late
November and is the result of work done by Scott
Porter of the Graphic Communications department,
Pao Sengkhammee of Zebra Technologies, and Betty-
lyn Krafft of the PCF. Zebra Technologies is a Partner
in Education with Johnson High School and was di-
rectly involved with introducing Johnson’s graphic
program with PCF.
Johnson High School is an excellent example of
how graphics education can be a pivotal career path
for today’s students.
With one of only 65 programs in the state, Johnson
High School boasts a high level of participation in
graphic and printing skills competitions like the
Phoenix Challenge Foundation High School Competi-
tion, SkillsUSA and various other printing and skills
events which also develop leadership skills.
In addition, this progressive high school offers a
Youth Apprentice Program as well as national accred-
itation programs. Johnson High Graphic Students
rank as one of the highest in Georgia in becoming
nationally certified in graphic arts.
To effectively support the mission of the Founda-
tion, the PCF offers sponsorships in support of its
fundraising for this year’s competition and scholar-
ship programs.
