Interior design students win at ASID competition

Posted October 31, 2012

Congratulations are in order for several ACU interior design majors, who received awards at the American Society of Interior Designers' (ASID) 2012 Texas chapter student symposium held in Dallas. Students from collegiate interior design programs across the state attended the two-day event, Oct. 5-6. 

Seniors Nicole Dorsey and Chad Moore won first place for their collaborative design of N. Morangie, an upscale retail store design. They each took home a trophy and shared a $250 cash prize. Junior interior design student Gracie Ferreyro was named one of the 2012 Kathy Parr Hammond Memorial Scholarship recipients and took home a $1500 scholarship. 

“When I found out I won one of the scholarships, I was so honored and excited. My hope is that this award will open doors as I begin looking for work, but it has inspired me to keep working harder no matter what,” says Ferreyro.

Dorsey also won second place for her commercial design of Intrepid Travel Agency. Senior Jillian Dowdy received first in the hospitality division for her Luminesce Hotel design and second place in the residential design division. Senior Morgan Hudson received second place for her Merse Boutique Hotel Design.
