GREEN — The walls of the main entrance of Green High School are more colorful this school year thanks to two large murals donated by the PTSA.

In July, Bill Faucett, of Bill Faucett Signs in Hartville, painted two murals at the school that cost $2,300. The mural in the entranceway says, “Welcome to Green High School” and the mural above the stairs says, “Home of the Bulldogs” with a bulldog resting on a bone. Faucett has painted three other murals throughout the building.

“The murals dress up the front lobby and commemorate volunteerism,” said Green High School Principal Cindy Brown, adding that PTSA events paid for the artwork.

Brown is shown at right, at far right, with seniors Shiloh Randall, at far left, and Andrew Zabel in front of the mural in the entranceway. The trio also are shown above in front of the mural above the stairs.

“The bright colors and the big graphics grab you when you walk in the door,” said Faucett, who designed and installed the murals. “They make for a comfortable atmosphere and show school spirit.”

Randall agreed.

“The murals make me proud to be a Bulldog,” Randall said.
