WASHOUGAL — Jemtegaard Middle School students created a mural this spring to represent school pride. The mural is now on display near the gymnasium and features a design by seventh-grader Aubrey Gale.

Student leaders worked with Principal David Cooke and Associate Principal Tiffany McCormick to form a mural committee with representatives from each grade level. They held a schoolwide design contest, seeking designs to represent Husky Pride. From a pool of eight entries, the committee selected Aubrey’s proposal. Aubrey was awarded a collection of art supplies for submitting the winning entry.

Aubrey worked with art teacher Dani Allen and two other students, Addison Curtis and Rylee Drake, to paint the mural. The team worked on the project after school each day.

The Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance provided funding for the materials and paint.
