A Ridgefield High School senior who found working on the Kindness Mural inspiring, Jenna Harford, has been appointed as a teen adviser to the RIdgefield Youth Commission.

“It really does spread kindness,” she said of the abstract mural overlooking Governor Street from the side of The Barn teen center. “Now, every time I drive by I think: I helped create that.”

Harford also said she’d done work with the Prevention Council.

“What do you hoped to accomplish?” Selectman Bob Hebert asked.

“One of my goals would be to encourage younger students to join,” Harford said.

She was appointed on a 5-to-0 vote of the selectmen in December.
