Mishawaka High School student congratulated for award-winning design

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- One Mishawaka High School student watched her lifetime dream come true and cruise the streets at the same time.

Mishawaka senior, 17-year-old Thi Do, created a design for the recent award winning dare vehicle from the Mishawaka Police Department.

From front to back, you'll find images and shapes of instruments, sports, and even other art students.

Both Lieuteneant Tim Williams and the high school's art teacher helped congratulate the teen on the award winning artwork.

"This started out a little bit like a class assignment and Lieutenant Williams asked if I had some students that were advanced enough to work on the design for the new D.A.R.E. car,” said Ryan Sergeant, Art Teacher at Mishawaka High School.

"It gets me out there and makes me happy in general so with me it's art, so I kinda put the art stuff on there and then there's other students who like to do athletics, like to read, other stuff that makes them happy, helps them get away from stuff,” said the senior.

She says it's the first time she's ever seen her artwork on an actual product.

Williams says he's dedicated the first place trophy to the MHS art class and it will be placed in their new art studio.
