Artist/author David Mack ['95] has been described by one of his former NKU art professors as a "Renaissance Man." Mack's career has enjoyed a metoric rise that even his comic book contemporaries would envy. But almost eclipsing the national and international critical acclaim he has received are the hometown hurrahs.
Mack was invited to give the commencement address at Ludlow High School, where he graduated in 1990, and was honored by the high school and city of Ludlow with an award of recognition for achievement. The mayor of Ludlow proclaimed June 5, 2003 to be David Mack Day, and Mack was presented with the framed proclaimation. His late mother received a similar honor from the city of Covington before she died for her years of teaching first grade, and Mack was thirlled to "follow in my mother's footsteps."
The English classes at Ludlow High School also will be studying his books next semester. The school is obtaining a copy for each student in its English classes and those books will be part of their required reading.
He will "come home" to NKU in October when he will be exhibiting in the Fine Arts Gallery.
