Creative Thought, Creative Masks
At Skidmore, we’re a creative community of individuals, and the masks we wear to protect our community are no exception.
From themes featuring the Thoroughbreds or our favorite professional sports team to fun and funky designs, our masks reflect our wide-ranging personalities, interests and creativity.
The masks may look different, but their goal is the same: protecting ourselves and our community against the spread of COVID-19.
“We’re all in this together,” said College President Marc C. Conner. “The actions that we take as individuals are how we will ensure the health and safety of our entire community.”
Wearing face masks is one of many important safety measures designed to keep the Skidmore and local communities safe. The city of Saratoga Springs also recently launched its own “Mask Up” campaign.
“One of the simplest things we can all do to put our collective health first is to mask up when we are out in public,” said Todd Shimkus, president of the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce. “We believe all of us in Saratoga and at Skidmore are in this together.”
Faculty, staff and students are invited to submit their own creative masks photos here or post on social media using the hashtag #CreativeMasks.
Photos will be shared on social media to showcase our community’s commitment to keeping each other safe.
Here are just a few:
