BOLINGBROOK – Members of Bolingbrook High School’s Best Buddies program on Thursday formally dedicated a two-piece mural they created with some help from BHS art students and staff as well, as staff from the Bolingbrook Sherwin-Williams store.

With Sherwin-Williams Assistant Manager Katie Detro and Decoration Product Specialist Sharae Neff looking on, former Principal Michael White cut the symbolic ribbon on the mural which hangs on the wall of the first landing in the D-Wing stairway.

“What a beautiful piece of art,” White said. “You have made this staircase turn from dim to bright.”

The right side of the mural contains the Best Buddies’ slogan “We change the world one friendship at a time” along with signatures of Best Buddies members.

“Best Buddies is an extra curricular club that supports friendships between individuals with intellectual disabilities and their peers,” Best Buddies President Maddie Rollins said before she introduced White.
