Students with the winning mural submissions, along with their parents, and WASD Administration were invited to attend. Mr. Robert Brumbaugh, Mrs. Margaret Nihoff, and Ms. Amanda Turner from Berwind were on hand to announce the winners and present prizes.

They hope for work to begin on the mural before the end of the summer.
