The Art Department at Northwood High School presented a mural to Chatham County Sheriff Richard Webster on Thursday, May 27, that will hang in the main entrance area of the Pittsboro Sheriff’s Office. Students of Leslie Burwell accepted the invitation from Sheriff Webster to create a mural for visitors to the office to enjoy.

This is the second year a Chatham County high school art department has created a mural to be displayed at the Sheriff’s Office. In the spring of 2003, the Chatham Central Art Department presented one that has been enjoyed by visitors for the past year. Webster noted that he hopes to have the Jordan-Matthews Art Department share a mural in 2005.

"We see the murals as an opportunity to draw attention to the talented high school art students in our county. Any way we can connect with our community's young people is an asset to us all," said Webster.

The Northwood art students involved in painting were Latoya Watson, Lilly Smith, Katie Hobbs, Michael Brooks, Sarah Jones, Scott McDowell, Margo Stout, and Taylor Newbold. The students responsible for the design of the mural were Michael Brooks, Lilly Smith, Katie Hobbs, and Margo Stout.
