Students, staff and faculty likely noticed some beautiful spring flowers lining the hallways of the B-P Junior/Senior High School. Mrs. Carroll is the face behind the secretive spring “Flower Power Project,” which she described as a way to help cheer everyone up and bring a smile to their faces.
She was in possession of paper that was to be recycled and decided to repurpose the paper into art. With the help of teaching assistant Mrs. Holt and B-P student Jose Berrocales, she is able to make and complete two flowers a day, using about 40-50 paper cones for each flower.
So far, they have made about 15 flowers, but the goal is to hang 50 hand-crafted flowers around the school and classrooms. Mrs. Carroll said she enjoys “making people smile one flower at a time!”
Thank you, Mrs. Carroll!
