CCS Alum To Watch: Donna Almendrala

She doesn’t work for peanuts– oh wait, yes she does! Peanuts with a capital P, that is. Hearty congratulations to class of 2012 alumna Donna Almendrala for joining the staff at Schulz Studios in Santa Rosa, CA. As a production artist, Donna will take on various tasks at the studio, including design approval for licensees, coloring, digital production, graphic and web design. “The job will grow into where my interests and skills lie as time goes on,” says Almendrala, who began work this week. Best of luck with this amazing opportunity, Donna!
