Katie Knight designed this year’s LAUNCH logo. Below she expresses the symbolism behind the iconic butterfly. Katie will present her thesis on the environmental impact of “fast fashion” on Wednesday, March 10.
We are happy to announce that the theme of LAUNCH 2021 is the Butterfly! Usually when we think of butterflies, we think about their beautiful patterns and colors but sometimes forget about the journey it took to get there, which could be the most important part. On LAUNCH day, we want to celebrate the individual journeys that students in the Episcopal community have taken in order to create something unique and beautiful. Though parts of this journey may not be so pretty, it is from persistence and determination that creativity and originality are found. Especially in the crazy world we find ourselves in today, we will find ways to grow and adapt from the obstacles that we’ve faced, and ultimately create a future filled with new possibilities. So on LAUNCH 2021, we want to encourage everyone to spread their wings and celebrate the journey taken to get there. - Katie
