FRHS Student Mural Drives Home A Sobering Holiday Message

More than a dozen Far Rockaway High School students from Mrs. Virginia McCauley’s art class gathered near Beach 35 Street and Beach Channel Drive on Wednesday to unveil their mural, which warns against the danger of drunk driving, just in time for the holidays. A handful of officers from the 101 Precinct, including Captain Walter Salowski, Community Affairs Officer, Detective Willy Olmeda, and Lieutenant Gary Messina were on hand as were 101 Pct. Community Council president Glenda Nesmith, vice president Gian Jones, and Felix Martinez from Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown’s office. The 8-foot square mural took about a month for the students, who labored before and after class, and even on Saturdays, to complete.
