Eight Highland View Academy Students under the direction of Julie Recker, registrar, spent the morning painting murals of Dr. Seuss scenes on the walls of an interview room at the Washington County Child Advocacy Center "Safe Place." The room has been dedicated to two babies, Bella and Justice, that were shaken to death a year ago.
Safe Place is committed to reducing the trauma to children in a child-friendly environment through collaborative investigations, therapeutic/medical interventions, and criminal prosecutions of child abuse cases.

The students completed about 1/3 of the project as well as touring the facility and learning about their mission. While admitting to very tired arms, they regretted not being able to finish in the time allotted. They plan to voluntarily return to the center after Thanksgiving to complete the project.
