Daryl Stoker direc tor of facilities management for NBISD He and other supervisors ensured every con crete block making up the mural was taken apart at its mortar joint numbered and reassembled based on pictures taken The top portion could not be saved because it was against the concrete beam The high school art staff reassembled those pieces and restored the artwork One of those restoring the mural is parttime art teacher Johnny Kolacek who taught Joe He was just a fantastic stu Kolacek said Friday as he touched up the section of the mural on theright of the doors to the new competition gym Were just doing this for Joe and his It was really hard his said Patty Smithers another one of Arevalos art teachers He wasnt the typi cal teenager He didnt party He didnt do any of that stuff And
