The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has chosen two students from the Houston Community College (HCC) Interior Design program as winners of two categories at the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter Ruby Awards.
During the recent event at the Decorative Center of Houston, Tania Albin won Best of Commercial Design and Rebeca Munoz won the award for Best of Residential Design.
“This award is very important for me because is the first time in my life I feel that an organization and a school is supporting me in achieving my professional goals,” said a thrilled Munoz. “The HCC Interior Design program helped grow as an interior designer. Since I started the program, my design abilities have been constantly improving with the help of my experienced professors. They are constantly pushing you to do your absolute best.”
Those proud professors are Shasta Swift, associate chair, HCC Consumer Arts & Sciences Center of Excellence and Kevin Hamby, HCC Interior Design program coordinator.
“We provide a rigorous two years of intensive design classes which has produced some of the most refined and talented interior designers Houston has to offer,” said Hamby.
“Shasta and I are so delighted when our students receive recognition from the professional interior design community for the hours of hard work and dedication it takes to get though the program.”
The Interior Design program is part of the HCC Consumer Arts & Sciences Center of Excellence. For more information, visit hccs.edu/interiordesign.
