Home of the Cougars

West Ridge Elementary School in Post Falls is the home of the Cougars. And now a 4' X 5' photo mosaic mural by X-Things, composed of 12,000 half inch square "cell photos", celebrates the mascot as well as the students. On Saturday morning school staff, PTO members and donors gathered to dedicate the mural. Ron Lahr, Co-President of the PTO, recognized Tribal Chairman Chief Allan for the Coeur d'Alene Tribe's contribution and Rep. Bob Nonini for his efforts in the fundraising, which provided classroom technology. My contribution was through hundreds of photographs of local scenes and people and I was quite impressed with the "thank you" packet that included a handwritten thank-you note from student Cassandra Hostetler. For Principal Mandy Surratt and Supt. Jerry Keane it was a great day. Just one more example of the partnership of business, community and education in Post Falls. Coeur d'Alene Press story HERE.
