Pittsboro, NC - In partnership with Sheriff Richard Webster's community outreach efforts, the Jordan-Matthews Art Club designed and painted a mural for the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office that will hang in the main entry area of the Pittsboro office. An area high school art department creates a mural each year.

Over a span of several meetings, the students created artwork on individual canvases that reflected their appreciation for the work of the Sheriff’s Office. The art club members involved with the project were Shari Mason, Desmi Contreras, Cobey Mauldin, Jazmin Bacilio, Karen Bacilio, and Guile Contreras.

Each member chose his or her own design that represented aspects of law enforcement. Some of the images included were the word “justice“ and a Sheriff’s badge.

With the assistance of June Arthurs, art teacher and art club sponsor, the students were able to design and complete this mural. Arthurs noted the art club created this work in order to acknowledge the job well done by the Sheriff’s Office staff who protect of all Chatham County’s citizens.

"Seeing the new mural designed by our high school students is something I look forward to each spring. I appreciate their willingness to share their talent with my staff and the public. It's important that we take every opportunity to highlight the accomplishments of young people," commented Sheriff Webster.
