TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Students at Augusta Raa Middle School will have some inspiration to look forward to this coming school year.

The project was dedicated by the members of Leadership Tallahassee Class 37 on Thursday, which includes RAA principal Marcus Scott.

"We’re excited for this school year," said Scott. "We’re excited to get them back. When they see this mural I hope they’re reminded that they’re Ram tough, that they’re RAA. They’re here to express themselves in artistic ways, academic ways and athletic ways."

Each of the icons on the mural highlights different focuses within the arts.

The mural was designed by RAA art teacher Katharine Aylward and brought to life by artist Sarah Painter.

"I want them to feel excited," said Painter. "I want them to feel fired up and this is a school they want to be at. A school that they take pride in. They have a sense of belonging in and they’re proud to call their home."
