PCHS students receive praise for mural

A group of Pulaski County High School art students received praise Tuesday for the mural they painted on a South Washington Avenue wall in Pulaski.
“You have taken an eyesore and made it something attractive,” Pulaski Mayor Jeff Worrell said to the students and their art teacher, Tammy Parks. “You’ve made a negative positive.”
Worrell said everyone should follow the example of the students and try to turn a negative into a positive.
Worrell and Sixth District Rep. Annie B. Crockett-Stark (R-Wythe) spoke Tuesday during a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially dedicate the mural. The event was followed by a reception in Jackson Park.
Crockett-Stark pointed out that the students exhibited ability, motivation and attitude in their hard work painting the mural.
“I have an attitude of gratitude for what you’ve done,” she said, adding that the mural captures the “spirit and essence of Pulaski.”
Although the ribbon cutting ceremony is only temporary, she said the resulting mural will serve as a historical record of the present.
Parks said she tried to stay out of the project as much as possible and let the students guide it.
“They did a fabulous job. These are 20 of the hardest working art students I’ve worked with,” said Akers. She thanked the high school for recognizing the importance of art in society.
Students who participated in the project included Devin Altizer, Brittany Cook, Emily Hess, Svetlana Howell, Brittany Isom, Katrina King, Pearl Meredith, Thomy Owens, Josh Palmer, Lauren Palmer, Iman Peoples, Derrick Pittsenbarger, Megan Puckett, Sara Ratcliff, Amanda Salinas, Kayla Saunders, Kat Thompson, Bekah Webster, Lindsey White and Emily Whittaker.
