Date: Wednesday, April 28, 1999 1:00 p.m.
The first four Master Peace murals were dedicated
during December 1998. At the completion of each project, dedication ceremonies
celebrated the process, involving the entire student body, teachers,
school-administrators, parents, community leaders, and other members of the community.
During these ceremonies students were presented with certificates, language arts
students read essays, band and dance students performed, and the community shared in the
pride of the Master Peace process. This act of celebrating the students' work is
central to Master Peace.
