DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) — Hidden Lake Elementary students remember a former classmate
During third grade graduation, Hidden Lake Elementary remembered former classmate, Lawson Howard who passed in 2015. The school commissioned Dothan High School art students to create a mural, to remember Lawson’s legacy.
Lawson was a student with Autism, and his parents were instrumental in helping create a sensory area within the special education classroom for students with sensory needs. The mural, which is ocean themed, was designed to do the same.
United Rentals, Inc. offered to frame the 6 ft tall by 8 ½ ft. wide mural, so that it could be displayed in the main hallway of the building for all students and faculty to enjoy.
