Student Feature – Destiny Logan

Note:  The slideshow contains examples of special effects make-up that includes fake blood and gore.   


Destiny Logan, a Redbank Valley High School senior, is a high honor student who also attends the Clarion County Career Center for cosmetology.  Destiny has been a stand-out in the cosmetology program.   She has been elected by her peers as vice-president of the cosmetology class.  Destiny placed first in the Skills USA Esthetics Competition locally and then placed fourth at the district-level competition.

Destiny has a particular interest in special effects make-up.  She became interested in this field because her grandpa was close friends with famous make-up artist, Tom Savani, also known as the Godfather of Gore.  Savani did the special effects make-up for classic horror movies like Friday the 13thNight of the Living Dead, and Tales from the Darkside.   Destiny’s grandpa actually had parts in two movies for which Savani provided make-up special effects.

This year, Destiny has been asked to do the special effects make-up for the spring musical, Beauty and the Beast.   Destiny will transform Peyton Kirkpatrick into the beast for the Redbank Valley stage.

Destiny eventually wants to attend Tom Savani’s Special Effects Program at the Douglas Education Center just south of Pittsburgh.  Destiny Logan is another example of the great talent RVHS has and what can happen when you put effort into your talent and passion.
