Painting the Town

Alumnus devises Topeka Mural Project; community invited to help paint

Joe Perry at one of the Topeka Mural Project sites

Lt. Joe Perry, bs '97, is tasked with reducing property crime as a member of the Topeka Police Department. He discovered murals can increase community pride in the areas they are painted, and Topeka now has nine murals thanks to the Topeka Mural Project, a partnership between TPD and ARTSConnect.

The Topeka Mural ProjectThe 10th mural is being created near the Brown v Board of Education National Historic Site, and the public is invited to help paint on Saturday, May 12, from 12-4 p.m. Learn more.

"When the citizens paint the wall, then they own it. They take pride in it and speak up if they think someone is going to deface it," Perry said.

We will feature his story in the next edition of The Ichabod, and you can read the story online now.


Investing in students

Kansas Masonic Foundation awards 27 scholarships to Washburn students

Danica Plante

Danica Plante decided to pursue a career in health care since she excels in math and science. She chose Washburn because it gave her the same feelings her hometown of Plainville, Kansas, do.

"I absolutely love Washburn, it’s very close knit just like Plainville and it’s absolutely beautiful. I like how it takes five minutes to walk across campus, and it is not separated by city blocks."

Thanks to scholarships from the Kansas Masonic Foundation, an affordable education is more attainable for her. She is one of 27 Washburn students receiving Masonic scholarships. She will be featured in the next edition of The Ichabod. Read her story now.

You can also make a difference in students' lives with gifts supporting Washburn scholarships.
