Seniors Create Mural for Freshmen

A senior mural meant to inspire freshmen and give them advice about high school went up last week.

Every senior wrote a short note to a freshman on the first day of school as part of their homeroom activities. The inspirational notes were pasted onto a 30-foot long poster, which was placed in the Freshman Academy building in between rooms 208 and 210. (The hanging up of the poster was delayed a bit because the school’s laminator was broke for a few weeks.)

“The purpose is for seniors to deliver their words of wisdom to the incoming class,” English teacher and Link Crew advisor Mrs. Melissa DiBlasi, who helped organize the activity, said.

The mural includes messages such as, “Be you, be true” and  “Enjoy high school while it lasts”.

The hope is that the mural will stay up until the freshman class graduates, then the mural will be displayed somewhere at the graduation, Mrs. DiBlasi said.

Mrs. Diblasi had some help with the mural. The National Honors Society helped cut out all of the templates, and senior Keagan McTamney drew an artistic design in the middle of the poster. He said he had originally created the design — a man with a bear head, roaring and flexing his muscles —  as a Class of 2019 flag design candidate. Another design was chosen, so he gave it to Mrs. DiBlasi to use on the mural. He said the design fits with the purpose of the mural.

“I wanted to tell freshmen to strive to stand out,” he said.

The senior mural will become a tradition that occurs in future years. Next year, another mural will be created that will hang somewhere else.
