National Art Honor Society (NAHS) and the Lion’s Brew coffee staff are teaming up by making mugs for teachers and staff

for when they order coffee from them. For the past month, NAHS students have been making the mugs.

Each mug has the same shape/size and follows the custom color that the teacher would like on their mug.

“I think the cups look great,” senior Adriana Coleman said. “I hope the teacher who buys them enjoys them and is proud to have them.”

Art teacher Alexandra LaBarr reached out to Special Education Teacher John Schick, wanting to team up as a fun project and fundraiser for the NAHS students.

These cups will be available at different times of the year as NAHS is running them in batches of 15-20. When teachers and staff order their coffee from the Lion’s Brew, it will be delivered in their personal cups. Later that day, the cups will be picked up to be washed and used again. 

The Lions Brew is delivered by a group of students who are a part of the special education program, These students learn job skills that they can take and use after high school. 

“It teaches them transferable work skills,” Schick said, “Skills they can use in terms of organizing and work that they can take with them in any job.”

For NAHS this year, they wanted to do more of a hands-on fundraiser that would support the local community. 

“Making these cups also teaches NAHS business skills and quality control components that come along with making art commercially,” LaBarr said.

Additionally, proceeds of these cups help cover costs for materials for making the cups and coffee, NAHS will be using their earnings to go on a trip to DC in the spring.
