The Artist Sharanda Wilburn, wanted to empower encourage and motivate the students and painted all 48 stall doors with messages like "You are going to change the world" in the boys' bathroom, to "Queens are leaders" in the girls bathrooms. The grant for the art was coordinated through the Douglas County Cultural Arts Council.
