Students Leave a Mark on Crescent Heights

Recent grade 12 graduating students, Miranda C., Gloria T., and Sean R. wanted to leave a permanent mark at the school they have attended for the past three years. Very much involved with art, drama, music and sports at Crescent Heights, these busy teens designed and painted the pillar at "Cowboy Corner" as a tribute to athletics at Crescent Heights High and to highlight the diversity of programs at our dynamic school.
