Henderson County High School’s School-Based Enterprise, LAUNCH.

The HCHS LAUNCH program is a group of talented designers under the direction of Mr. Givens. We are looking to acquire your patronage through the creation of posters, banners, room decor, t-shirts, and other printed materials.  We provide an assortment of services from general graphic design to video production. Even web design and maintenance. Anything you can think of we can get it made, mocked up, and sent to you. The students plan, develop, and implement ideas or strategies to help your classroom, grade level, building, school, district, etc.


We invite you to utilize this wonderful enterprise to help with your needs while also providing real, relevant experience for these 14 students. LAUNCH is willing to help you with your needs free of charge. However, any donations to LAUNCH will be greatly appreciated. At the end of the year, a portion of the proceeds will be distributed as a scholarship in return for their hard work.


So, how do you get your job started with LAUNCH? One of three ways.


It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3.
