The Third Circuit Court is pleased to announce its 2020 Annual Report Cover Contest winners. This contest is open to high school students who reside in or attend Wayne County schools.

The 1st place winner is Jourdan May. Jourdan is a senior at William D. Ford Career Center.  He is an only child and has one pet named RV (Rosievelt). Ever since he was a little kid, he has always loved art and drawing. As he got older, his interest in art developed into a passion.  He began learning animation and 3-D art; and eventually discovered graphic design. He eventually joined a graphic design class at William

D. Ford and from there, his skills have flourished. A big reason for that is his teacher, Mr. Benglian. Mr. Benglian’s honesty and knowledge of graphic design helped Jourdan improve and get to the point where he is now. He plans to pursue a career in graphic design. He would like to attend College for Creative Studies or CalArts for Illustration.
