Norma Fervier


Featured Graduate: Norma Fevrier

Norma Fevrier graduated from the BAC in 2014 with a Bachelor of Interior Design degree. Norma has been a member of the BAC community since 2006 when she began the Summer Academy High School Design Exploration Program as a Houseman Scholar. The Houseman Scholarship Program aims to increase diversity among BAC students, graduates, and the design professions by making design education available to underrepresented groups in the profession.

Norma was the first Houseman Scholar to graduate from the BAC and credits much of her success to the scholarship. "It gave me an opportunity to go a school that impacted my life and career dramatically. I was lucky to have the freedom to explore many different areas of design"...more
