Walters High students paint parking spaces for beautification project

WALTERS, Okla. (TNN) - High school students at Walters are painting parking spaces as part of a beautification project.

They've been hard at work since September, painting those spots during their off-time.

Each student had to pay $25 in order to take part, and the spot they paint is theirs for the rest of the school year.

Nicole Jordan, the high school principal, says this is just the start of a beautification process for the school, and something she wanted to do to make the students prouder of their school.

“I want kids to be proud of where they come from and people don’t know when they drive by how wonderful these kids are and how dedicated they are to not only their academics but their sport. So I want people to drive by and go ‘Wow, that’s just a beautiful campus. I want to check it out’," said Jordan.

She says parents and members of the community are also pitching in, donating large rocks, flowers and pumpkins.

They're also planning to add some landscaping areas to the campus in the future.

The money raised is going toward the school’s art club.
