A picture, they say, is worth 1,000 words. If that’s the case, there’s no way I can muster the words I need to describe the mural that takes up a whole wall in the cafeteria at Oak Grove Elementary School. What I can do, however, is attempt to connect the school motto, this mural, and the stories of the talented staff who work there to paint you a picture of just how awesome of a place to learn Oak Grove is.
