  • Mural Art

    As you drive around the campus you will notice a bright and bold mural reminiscent of our Wichita flag. The art piece was designed and painted by Independent senior, Grace Gill, and is the result of an item offered at the Wanderlust auction last year. A friend of the school made a generous donation to support Independent's annual fund and, in exchange, had the opportunity to include his grandchildren's names in the mural. It was a great way to beautify the space and support the school at the same time. Grace volunteered more than 50 hours of her already busy life to create this piece. Thank you to all who made this happen!
