Several students from Washington Middle School will cut the ribbon today on a drug prevention mural at a nearby bus stop.
The mural is a project of a school club called Huskies Against Drugs & Alcohol, which is named after the school’s mascot. The club was formed by two sixth graders, Alan Mendoza and Vieagus Ortega. The students collaborated with Dever Dunnett, an artist from Arts in Motion, and the three painted panels at a nearby bus stop shelter every Monday after school. Eighth grader Amira Abdel-Fattah later joined in the efforts.
The event will start with a student presentation in the school cafeteria, followed by the ribbon cutting at the bus stop, across the street from the school. The event begins at 3:15 p.m.
