Recent Centennial High School graduate Cori Borgstadt wrapped up 12 years of Girl Scouting with her Gold award project, transforming a 43-foot gray wall at the school into a colorful mural designed by Boston’s Alex Cook.
This is Cook’s first mural in Arizona. He has created more 220 murals around the U.S. and abroad and has worked with diverse communities of all ages and abilities. The mural continues his theme of “You are loved.”
Borgstadt graduated in May and will be a freshman at Texas Tech in August.
The Gold award is the highest award available in the Girl Scouts.
Early on, the project design was submitted to the Peoria Unified School District and more than $7,000 in funding was secured, including funds from selling nearly 3,100 boxes of cookies this year.
