Bio

Cas­sidy Miles is a grad­u­ate stu­dent at West­ern Illi­nois Univer­sity. She wanted to start a fundraiser for the Amer­i­can Fish­eries So­ci­ety Hut­ton Pro­gram.

This pro­gram pro­vides paid sum­mer in­tern­ships with a mentor in fish­eries for high school stu­dents (par­tic­u­larly from un­der-rep­re­sented groups) from Canada, Amer­ica, and Mex­ico. The Hut­ton Schol­ars gain field and lab ex­pe­ri­ence in fish­eries.

Cas­sidy col­lab­o­rated with artist Drew Wil­son and cre­ated the Diver­sity and In­clu­sion Fish logo. It is a bluegill out­line filled with the more in­clu­sive PRIDE flag (in­cludes Trans flag col­ors and Black and Brown stripes for LGBTQ+ Peo­ple of Color.)

This was the first piece of mer­chan­dise cre­ated for the AFS Hut­ton Pro­gram Fundraiser.

The pins were a lim­ited batch that were cre­ated and sold out in 1 and a half days. These raised over $1,000 for the pro­gram! The de­sign was cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with artist Drew Wil­son (known as @drewlr on In­sta­gram.)
