Heritage Alumna Receives
Prestigous Scholarship

Dylan Eggleston, a senior Fashion Merchandising major at Savannah College of Art & Design and Heritage Class of 2017, received some great news last week. Dylan was notified that she is a 2021 Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF) recipient. This prestigious organization sponsored by top fashion designers and highly acclaimed fashion companies selects the most outstanding 100-120 students each year in the fashion industry from 60 colleges and universities. All entries were judged by an anonymous panel of renowned experts in the fashion industry.  Dylan was selected as one of the most creative, talented, and accomplished fashion students, nationally for 2021.
Dylan created her project in the discipline of Merchandising, encouraging candidates to identify a current political, cultural, or social phenomenon and integrate it into an online and in-store merchandise campaign while maintaining brand integrity and authenticity. Dylan chose to focus on Nike in conjunction with the research charity DEBRA, for a limited collection supporting Epidermolysis Bulllosa, inspired by her dear friend, Lucy Beall.  It is the intention of Dylan’s project to spread awareness about Lucy’s skin condition and push the fashion industry to recognize disabled individuals in mass media and challenge beauty “standards.”

Dylan, along with the other incredibly deserving students, received recognition in Women’s Wear Daily (digital). The recipients will also have exclusive access to mentoring and employment opportunities from top fashion designers and companies.

Dylan’s project can be viewed on the Fashion Scholarship Fund website: https://www.fashionscholarshipfund.org/fsf-scholars/tj9hm7feb3gwxkh-zjw9w-t9pwb Case study.

Well done, Dylan!

On the loss

There is nothing good or fun about losing. We train each other to be winners. It is important to remember what you stand for, who you are, and what your foundation is in losses like this. We are going to praise God when we win, and we are going to praise God when we lose. Our self-worth is not tied to a scoreboard, whether we win by 70, or lose by 70. Our self-worth is based in being children of God.
Tonight we gave up 70 plus points, and it's hard to win when that happens. We found ourselves making uncharacteristic mistakes. Playing at this level and against this caliber of a team, it's going to be hard to scratch out a win doing that. I was very proud of the fight our guys showed and the class that they showed all the way up to the end. It's one thing to play hard, smash mouth, classy football whilst winning, but it is another thing to continue doing that when you are losing. We needed to get a stop or two somewhere in the game and we didn't.  
On the seniors
It is tough to see them go out this way - one game short of a shot at a state title. However, these three seniors worked their tails off and had an incredible 7-year journey (when you include Junior High football.) They made a ton of great memories and learned many lessons along the way. They built relationships that will last a lifetime. The coaching staff is blessed and grateful for the opportunity to coach these fine young men.  
On the season
Truthfully, every player would tell you that there is huge disappointment in not making it back to the state championship game and winning it.  We had a great journey and the Lord taught us all many great life lessons through this game we call football.  We are thankful to have gotten to play, grow and learn. This is a special team.
