If you have been to a girls’ bathroom on campus in the last few months, you will have noticed some changes. In addition to a new colorful coat of paint courtesy of National Honor Society (NHS), every bathroom is being decorated in its own unique way by National Art Honor Society (NAHS). Led by club president Grace Quinn, the projects are a mix of murals and motivational phrases.

 The club formulated this idea in early 2018 when NHS began repainting the bathrooms. “NAHS is collaborating with NHS to make the girls’ bathrooms a more positive space,” stated member Adrielle Benner, a junior. “NAHS usually does murals around the school every year or every couple of years, so this year because NHS painted the bathrooms different colors we decided it would be best to do them there.”

 Although the project currently includes the women’s restrooms only, NAHS hopes to expand the effort to the men’s rooms in future years.

 The club split into groups, picked their bathrooms, and created inspirational designs which were then approved by Dr. Decker. The members stay after school to paint these artworks and hope their hard work will pay off toward making Sanderson a more positive environment.
