MCLEAN - McLean High School students honored their high school in a “goofy” way: By sculpting Scottie dogs.

The Scottish Terrier breed is a nod toward their mascot: The Highlander, a soldier in historic regiments of Scotland’s military.

“I just had this idea to have something fun and lighthearted that would kind of bring our community together,” says Christina Carroll, who teaches art in the high school’s Fine Arts Department. “So much of high school is very serious. This was a little goofy and we had some fun.”

Students in her foundational Art 1 class had to mold their sculptures according to different themes they selected.

“They were beginner students, but the stuff they did was pretty advanced,” Carroll says.
