Many students dream of leaving a mark on their high school. Seniors Jae Getz and Taylor Gunnells are accomplishing this dream by painting a mural in the main office.

Painting a mural is very detailed and requires a lot of thought and perspective.

I did three sketches (sophomore year) and a year later they asked Jae Getz and I to do one. I really love doing them because it’s a lot different than what others g...
