Thumbs up, thumbs down

Thumbs up to Central Unified School District Superintendent Mike Berg for commissioning a mural by local artist Will Portis depicting the opportunities for district students. The mural is on the south wall of the district office at 5652 W Gettysburg Ave. There are images of students in agriculture, career technical education, dance, math and science, drama, music, robotics and Future Farmers of America competition. The mural captures the district’s core values and the area’s agricultural heritage. Said Berg, who is retiring at the end of 2015: “It’s a piece I’m very proud of as it depicts my tenure’s work in Central.”
