Mary Pekel got the idea when traveling through the U.P. While approaching Munising she saw an older plow truck with the blade painted in a design and the idea appealed to the artistic nature of the Fremont High School Art Instructor.
She was put in contact with Derek Wawsczyk of the Newaygo County Road Commission who arranged to have one of their blades brought to the back part of the school.
In the meantime Ms. Pekel was able to gather together the paints and supplies needed for the project from a number of sources including a donation from Ace Hardware.
Enter the efforts of Lauren Boerger, Kaitlyn Sanborn, Isabel Johnson, Emma Kartes, and Audrey Johnson. The five FHS students created the new look for NCRC despite having to work around the many cold and wet days this spring that didn’t allow for painting.
Now the project is finished and the results will be witnessed clearing our roadways next winter.
