SALTILLO, Miss. (WCBI)-Saltillo Elementary will be sporting a bright new look thanks to Glidden Paint and community efforts.
Thanks to recent pledges from members of the community bright new colors will adorn the walls for the 800 students at the school.
Last fall, the school was among five national finalists in Glidden paint’s “Colorful Classrooms Contest.”
Saltillo placed second in the competition and received 200 gallons of paint for their school valued at $50,000 dollars.
Several murals in the cafeteria, auditorium, and multipurpose room will be painted.
