Climbing the Wall

Parkersburg South High School art teacher Abbie Burge offers some pointers on a section of the floodwall mural as South senior Avery Burris and alumnus Joseph Whipkey work on it Friday morning at Point Park while Parkersburg Catholic senior Elaina Ross, left, paints over a number used to designate a gridded portion of the mural. Minnesota resident and Parkersburg native Christopher Santer is in town for four weeks to do phase one of the project and is being assisted this week by local students. (Photo by Evan Bevins)
