One area high school showed its city wide pride by putting their art skills to work Friday afternoon.

The Belpre High School Leos, an affiliate group with the city's Lions Club, painted the entire tunnel on Barclay Street.

It shows how much they care about their city and the dedication of making it look better.

Later on Friday, the Leos will paint the tunnel black and orange with it saying "Belpre pride is city wide".

"We just want to show Belpre there's kids out here that does care about their town and they're not out to destroy it, they want to improve it, they want it to look good," says Belpre High School Leos Advisor, Dianne Smith.

Members of the Leos say they hope to have the project completed sometime next week.
