The end of the biology hallway is being repainted. NAHS students junior Sarah Cook and senior Anna Karnowski are painting an educational mural in the science wing. The mural will be centered around various components of marine life such as animals and endangered species. The painting was Environmental Ed teacher Russell DeBey’s idea.
“Mr. Debay asked me about working on a mural [for the biology hall] l while I was working on a mural in Mr. Muhammad’s room,” Cook said.
The mural will feature ocean life such as octopuses, squids and various fish. There will also be a section dedicated endangered species, including tuna and sea turtles. The painting will be used as an educational tool for district kindergarten students visiting Environmental Ed classes to learn about animals and the environment.
Cook and Karnowski began work on the mural Sept. 10. They first painted the wall with a blue paint base coat and will continue painting from there. The mural is scheduled for finish sometime by the end of this month or early October.
