The Benefit Billboard illusion was inspired by a t-shirt Mrs. Mays created 8 years ago that showcased "Be a benefit and not a bully" and "expect respect." Through this illusion, she wanted her students to bring together love, peace, and coping skills. The multicolored hearts are individual, but they come together to create a bigger peace design representing how diverse people can come together to make society/humanity better. The large message reminds bullies to try a new approach to behavior, while the small hearts reminds victims to stand up for themselves and pass on their "beneficial behavior." Although Mrs. Mays' 8th grade students created the display, the Senior High students of her study hall cut out all of the hearts and researched synonyms to write on them. Mrs. Mays hopes this will inspire our future citizens to treat people humanely and spread happiness.
