Local resident Stephany Barry recently volunteered her time, talents, and resources to paint new murals at the handball courts at Carrillo Elementary School. The 10-by-17-foot cinder block walls were previously covered in grafitti markings of sharpies, crayons, and chalk. Stephany noticed the walls and approached Principal Betsy Kannenberg earlier this year. “I mentioned that I would love to paint the handball courts and told her I would send her some ideas that I had in mind. She replied with complete enthusiasm and also gave me a list of quotes from American leaders that I could implement into some of the murals.” She continued, “I hope these paintings leave the children with imagination and a vision of what they can accomplish in life. Art programs are expensive and so they are limited in our schools, but if I can inspire even one child then I’ve accomplished my mission.”
