Students and staff commemorate their achievement at Wilsonville City Hall on Dec. 17. Students from Wilsonville and Arts and Technology high schools received quite the boost on Monday night when their design was selected to be featured on Wilsonville's new SMART electric bus fleet.

Students from the two high schools presented their design at the Dec. 17 City Council meeting following months of hard work that date all the way back to last school year. Buses will be wrapped with the design in the spring with the unveiling of the new buses set for the end of the school year. Students will tour Gillespie Graphics headquarters where they will print and install the wraps themselves.

The team of student artists includes Leilani Bautista, Vianey Bautista, Jasleen Kaur Bhullar, Elaysia Gates, Eleanor Karrick, Angelica Maldonado, Max McGuire. A special thank you also goes to WHS Art Teacher Christopher Shotola-Hardt and ATHS Teacher Philip Clark for their support of students during their design process.
