(Batesville, Ind.) - The newest entry in the Batesville Community Education Foundation’s (BCEF) mural project in downtown Batesville was recently installed on the side of The Simons Company building at the corner of Main and George Streets. This program features artwork from students from the four Batesville Community School Corporation (BCSC) buildings on a rotating basis.

Batesville Middle School (BMS) seventh grader student Lacey Gillman created the mural using colored pencils. BCEF would like to thank BMS art teacher Lynne DiMuzio for her help with this program. In addition, Jimmy Rowland from Rowland Graphics donated his time to install the mural and Nick Maple, owner of the building, provided the use of his location for the display. Jama Linkel-Cleghorn from the BCEF board of directors is the coordinator of this program.
