Stacy Jarrell serves on the Advertising and Graphic Design faculty at Pitt Community College in Greenville, NC. After participating in World View’s study visit to Costa Rica and Nicaragua in July 2015, Ms. Jarrell returned to the classroom and developed an innovative design project to connect her students to her experience abroad. Each student took coffee – a staple of Costa Rican daily life – created a hypothetical coffee grower, conceived a brand and designed its packaging.  In an effort to brainstorm appropriate names for a grower and conceptualize a logo, her students researched Costa Rica, explored the developing practice of permaculture, learned about the roasting process of the coffee bean and, of course, shared some brew!

The resulting impact of the project on Ms. Jarrell’s students was not only the realization of a creative design and marketing solution, but also a feeling of connection to the culture of Costa Rica and an appreciation for the uniqueness of its location, lifestyle and people. Ms. Jarrell will be awarded the annual James L. Peacock scholarship to attend World View’s upcoming seminar, “Building Bridges: Cultural Respect and Equity in the Classroom.”
