As part of an International Aids Day event at PCC's Cascade campus Nov. 30, students from Jefferson High School displayed a quilt they made themselves, while standing in front of a panel from the largest community art project in the world — the  AIDS Memorial Quilt. As well as making the quilt, the students set up an information table at Jefferson to raise awareness about the disease. African Americans now make up about 50 percent of those newly diagnosed with HIV infections. From left: Marquis Stoudamire, a veteran, attending college at PSU.
