A senior’s legacy

Eastern Alamance High School senior and independent advanced pottery student Maggie Schmid has created and installed a tile mural at the school.

Schmid had help from Cale Bennett, owner of Witzz-NWood, who assisted her with grout work and adhering the individual tiles.

The mural depicts Schmid,facing away from the viewer in a letterman’s jacket that says “Eastern.” She’s pointing both thumbs at the back of the jacket.

The semester-long project took about two weeks to install and will remain in the school’s breezeway indefinitely.

Bennett said he was happy to give back to the community, and that it was a thrill to work with someone who could visualize a project from start to finish as well as Schmid did.
