    We would like to thank and recognize the hard work and dedication of Mrs. Stefani Thomas from the Granada Hills Charter High School (GHCHS) Visual and Performing Arts Department and her group of volunteers, who diligently completed the "Spirit of Innovation" portion of the mural, started in 2015 by volunteers from the UCLA Volunteer Center, on the yardside of our Lower Grade building over 2018 Summer break. Beautiful and inspiring!
