To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Hands On Nashville Day – HON’s signature event that connected over 1,800 volunteers with 55 Metro Nashville Public Schools last month – HON looked for a special service project. Enter Nossi College of Art students, faculty member Arden von Haeger, and administrator Julie Reynolds. They volunteered their collective services to design and paint murals that promote healthy eating in school cafeterias. Of course, HON and Metro Schools gratefully accepted. A project worthy of HON’s 20th anniversary was developed and implemented, and the results are visible on the walls of six lucky schools — McGavock High, Overton High, Glengarry Elementary, Rose Park Middle School, Park Avenue Elementary School, and Stratford High School. Thanks to Arden, Julie, Nossi students, and their fellow volunteers who made these murals a reality. They were a big part in making Hands On Nashville Day 2011 the most successful ever.
