Chandler Early College wins festival mural award

The award-winning mural designed by Chandler Early
College students and participants.
Chandler Early College, a non-traditional high school housed on the Pecos campus of Chandler-Gilbert Community College, won the Phoenix Festival of the Arts Youth Mural Project.

Participants worked together on brainstorming, planning and designing a mural that echoed this year's festival theme: “Placemaking.”As winners, they will have an artist come out every Friday for a month to present and work with students.

Operated through the Chandler Unified School District, Chandler Early College was designed for students who are motivated and driven to obtain a college education. CEC offers the ability to take high school and college courses at the same time, determine a program of study, and complete the first year of an associate degree while still in high school.
