Early Choices’ “Be the Wall” Mural Painting a Success!

On Wednesday, November 16th, Early County citizens from all walks of life came together to paint a mural.  This mural represents the decision for our community’s adults to “Be the Wall” between teens and alcohol, and it will be displayed at events and at Early County High School to create and maintain awareness about this initiative.

Early Choices developed the mural idea as a way to bring the community together to reinforce the importance of preventing alcohol abuse among our community teens.

Parents – and all adults – in Early County can work together in this county-wide exercise to educate the community and each other on the seriousness of helping our youth to make positive choices.  Protecting our young people from underage drinking and the risky behaviors that can go along with it will help empower them to make good decisions as they mature into adults.

The initial mural design, created by renowned landscape artist & muralist Janice Polzin, the “Be the Wall” mural painting celebrates our community spirit and encourages teens and adults to make positive choices.  You can see a video of the painting of the mural here.
