Massapequa High School senior Ana Ruiz Garcia paints her mural on the bagel store wall.

The murals painted on the side wall of Town Bagel next to Massapequa High School have become one of the most visual displays of school spirit in the community. Now, Massapequa High School senior Ana Ruiz Garcia can add her name to those who have created one. Ana’s design was chosen as the new mural after several mural designs were submitted then voted on by the student body and staff. The mural was recently painted by art students under the supervision of art teachers Gale Domingo and Julie Thornton. Ana, who has taken several art classes including Drawing & Painting I, Computer Art & Design, Sculpture and Creative Crafts, plans to pursue a career in animation.
