The Armory, DC’s student-run store, outfits the DC community with gear, gifts, and more. During the 2021-22 school, students wanted to design a product that would help achieve The Armory's vision of “a school community representing DC spirit and God’s Spirit everywhere we go.” Members of the Class of 2022, Eliza Connolly, Micah Dill, and Shannon Elliott, designed the first DC Love Sweatshirts, which launched leading up to Valentine’s Day and featured "His love never fails" on the back in reference to 1 Corinthians 13:8.
Since these were student-designed, they were different from every other product sold in the Armory. They were innovative, ingenious, and artistic. And most importantly, they put scripture out into the community. The Love Sweatshirt gave our community an opportunity to spread the Word of God and the message of his love.
This year, Armory Managers desired to continue the Love Sweatshirts tradition and help spread the Word of God, with the scripture clothing on the back. The 2023 Love Sweatshirt features Corinthians 13:13, “But the greatest of these is love” and was designed by junior Chloe Bryant and her product team, including senior Sky Corcimiglia and freshman Kelly Johnson. Chloe shares, “What is so great about these Love Sweatshirts is the fact that they are for all members of our community. We see students wear them not only in the classroom but also outside of school as well. Parents and faculty wear them too!”
Chloe continues, “It is such a blessing that we as students have the opportunity to design products that we know others will enjoy. We are so thankful that we are able to experience the business world and get an idea of what it is like. It is a different feeling when you are receiving something that was made by a peer.” Now DC community members can wear items designed by our very own students. As Chloe says, “It’s a way to spread the word of God through style.”
