Mayor Domenic J. Sarno stopped by Rebecca Johnson School on Saturday, August 19th to view the progress on the Ruth Carter Mural that will honor Springfield’s own iconic costumer designer, author and 2-time Academy Award winner, Ruth E. Carter.

Mayor Sarno states, “The mural to honor one of Springfield’s most accomplished daughters, Ruth E. Carter, is coming along nicely.  My administration is proud to support and fund this important project to acknowledge Ruth.  This mural, located on our Rebecca Johnson Elementary School, will not only honor Ruth, but help to inspire our Springfield youth that through education and hard work they can and will succeed to accomplish their dreams.  Special shoutout to the talented artists for their amazing work too.  I am looking forward to its finish and once again being with Ruth as we officially unveil her mural.”
