MPLS figured anyone out painting her school’s name in Monday’s brutal 91-degree heat deserves a shoutout.
Jena McDermott, an AmeriCorps volunteer at Andersen United Community School in the Phillips community, sent the kids inside due to the heat. But she remained outside. “I’m a perfectionist,” she said.
McDermott works with kids in an after-school sports and arts program, who decided to paint the bricks spelling out “Andersen” in rainbow colors. The bricks previously were all-white.
