Cavaliers Paint the Plow for Second Year
Cavaliers Paint the Plow for Second Year

The Jenkins Cavaliers bleed green, and so does their snow plow blade, created by art students Makala Stambaugh and Savannah Wright. For art teacher Gina Sparks, this is the second year her students have participated in Highway District 12’s Paint the Plow challenge. Motorists who drive US 119 between US 23 and the KY 15 intersection will see the J-Town blade on the truck that runs that route during winter weather.
In addition to adding some color and interest to what are otherwise drab industrial-looking plow blades, the project gives students a chance to promote their school.
“We are thrilled that Ms. Sparks allows her students to participate in our Paint the Plow program,” said Mary Westfall-Holbrook, D12’s Chief District Engineer. “Not only does this give them a project that is different from most, it gives motorists something fun and interesting to see. Plus, our crew members are really proud of the blades they get to show off on our highways. Most of the crew members either graduated from high schools in the district or have children who are now students there. It is another way to connect with the people we serve and for these young people to show off their talents and creativity.”
