Thanks for acknowledging Mike Howard and his dedication to making the world a better place through his work with Operation Clean Slate.(Disclosure: I'm his sister.) I have helped paint on several of his mural projects over the years and it is some of the most gratifying and most memorable work one can do. Even better is to witness how the kids & teachers alike respond with such pride and positive feelings for their accomplishments. Operation Clean Slate, whose murals also carry a message (like anti-tobacco, exercise, and eating healthy) is a program that many other schools and businesses alike could benefit from. Thanks again for your nice article.

Very positive program and the outcome is amazing. Empowering the students to create a happy and bright atmosphere also helps to create ownership and pride in their school and neighborhood. All children are needing attention and recognition and this program gives it to them along with a great educational message. There are fewer programs available to school children and this is a great one to support! All the children are welcome to participate!

Great job Mr. Howard. I hope many more schools and communities will invite you to create works of art with their children.
