This will be the view for every student attending HSTAT in Bayridge from now on. The mural was the biggest project I’ve ever had the opportunity to complete in my art education career. This visual representation and symbolism was created by all of my classes collaboratively. Welcome, diversity, community, and plenty of persistence. I feel nothing but joy and accomplishment. My principal and I closed our eyes and walked in through the student entrance to really get the full experience of the visual embrace of color and welcome.
