Student paint crew gives fresh look to many parts of campus

Many classrooms, offices, and residence halls received a new look this summer with the help of more than a dozen students and a recent graduate.

The student paint crew completed 34 projects this summer, according to John Leary, Randolph’s maintenance supervisor. The projects included classrooms, all of Webb Hall’s living spaces, the Office of the President, the registrar’s office, the Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College, and the Health Center.

Four student team leaders—Ben See ’13, Olivia Johnson ’14, Ashlie Hughes ’15, and Babatunde Ajao ’15—helped Deck Davidson, the College’s painter, complete the projects successfully by guiding the newer painters on the team.

Their work has caught the attention of many faculty and staff members. “I, along with others throughout campus, are proud of their work, their enthusiasm, the teamwork exhibited, and the great leadership shown by the team leaders on the crew,” said Mitch Wesolowski, interim vice president for finance and administration. “They were excellent!”
