Bear Creek School Unveils Student Leadership Murals

On Tuesday, May 21, Bear Creek School students proudly revealed two of their three planned Leadership Murals, showcasing their creativity and teamwork. In the fall of 2023, students had the chance to submit designs for three themes:

  1. Leaders Work Here
  2. Leaders Shine Here
  3. Leaders Grow Here

Once the submission window closed, the school's Leader In Me Environment Action Team chose the theme winners, which included Zoë Binkle for Leaders Grow Here, Reagan Planey for Leaders Shine Here, and Dylan Walter for Leaders Work Here.

The winning designs were brought to life under the guidance of Bear Creek School art teacher Ayla West and her student intern, Madeline Pelna. Madeline creatively incorporated elements from all submissions to create the finished murals.

The completion of this school-wide project was no small feat. A mural team, consisting of students from every grade level and additional artists from the high school, worked tirelessly alongside Ayla and Madeline. Their collaborative spirit was evident in the numerous after-school workshops, culminating in the project's completion by the end of the 2023-2024 school year.

The mural team includes Zoë Binkle, Reagan Planey, Dylan Walters, Madeline Pelna, Dominic Hemsch, Grace Errett, Lillian Marcarelli, Gabe Bryan, Grace Quickel, Lydia Dailey, Mackenzie Perez, Audrey McCloskey, Arju Subedi, Kaia Drescher, Sienna Sheehe, Bentley Leas, and Evelyn Krause.

The Bear Creek community extends its heartfelt gratitude to all involved in making this project a reality. These murals stand as a testament to creativity, collaboration, and leadership within the Bear Creek community.
