Jenny (Cayo) Ferguson is KC Success Story


Jenny (Cayo) Ferguson graduated from Mulberry Grove High School in 2009 and immediately continued on at Kaskaskia College where she graduated with her Associate in Arts Degree in 2011. “KC helped me start my education by giving me a full-ride scholarship for two years. It was kind of a no-brainer for me where I was going at that point,” says Ferguson.


Ferguson was very active while attending Kaskaskia College. She was a Peer Mentor, a Success Center Tutor, the President of the organization BASIC, and on Student Congress. Ferguson was also in the Art Club, the Vice President of Theatre Guild, and the Vice President of Scholarship for Phi Theta Kappa.


She adds, “By getting involved, KC helped give me additional time to think about what I wanted to do with my life, and get involved with other people.”


After graduating from Kaskaskia College, Ferguson continued her education at Greenville College and ultimately graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Digital Media: Graphic Design in 2013. She is currently living in New Baden with her husband Paul and three dogs – Trixie, Muffin and Billy.  Ferguson shared that KC Professor David Quinn of Kaskaskia College was who introduced her to her husband.


Ferguson is currently the Lead Designer for Digitalartz Sign Studio and Graphics Haus in Highland. She does client consultations and networking, design work, and manages the design department workflow. “I have worked on everything from business cards to full vehicle wraps and graphics, to full company branding and signs. I love what I do!” She also works with the owner and Creative Director to create and implement new products and standard operating procedures.


“I would recommend KC to others because it was a great place to start my education. I made a lot of friends that I still talk to, and had a lot of great mentors to help me translate my experience from that of a good student to that of a successful young adult.”
