North Hagerstown High School art teacher Brandy Merchant was honored Tuesday for her work in painting murals in the newly renovated and expanded space in Safe Place for Washington County Child Advocacy Center.

Merchant was recognized during Tuesday's Washington County Board of Education meeting.

Safe Place is a child advocacy center that responds to the investigation, treatment and prosecution of child abuse cases. The victims of those crimes are in the Safe Place office daily. The offices are in the H.W. Murphy Community Health Center at 24 N. Walnut St. in Hagerstown.

"She makes us very proud," Superintendent Elizabeth Morgan said of Merchant.
