A colorful contemporary logo for the Town of Prescott Valley was unveiled March 24.
Vivid colors represent blue open skies, green landscapes that follows summer rains, and golden wheat colors that are so common when the year is dry. The Town’s initials float above a stylized image of the landmark Glassford Hill and its adjacent formations
The new logo had been in planning stages since late 2021. It was created through a contract with Nicole Rodriguez of John Delano Marketing and Web Design. The designer considered opinions from residents throughout the community about what the image should portray.
The logo will be prominently featured on all official Town of Prescott Valley vehicles, signs, correspondence and official community venues.
Symposium Attracts Wine Lovers
An educational symposium sponsored by the Southwest Wine Center at Yavapai College, Clarkdale, featured a daylong program focusing on enology, viticulture and business-entrepreneurship in the wine industry.
The Verde Valley is gaining regional and national recognition as a favored wine-growing region. More and more students are enrolling at the center to learn the fine points of growing grapes and making fine wine, said Lisa Aguilar, Wine Tasing Manager. She noted the average age for students is 50.
Debbie McCasland, chair for Yavapai College’s governing board, praised the center during the April 23 symposium: “The success of our wine center is amazing.
“Our students constantly produce award-winning wines, and at least 20 or our graduates have started their own successful businesses. We praise the efforts of that staff led by Michael Pierce.”
