School Paints Over Historical Mural With New 'Heroes' -- Oprah and Obama
“This is no longer a hall of heroes. Now we have a hall of celebrities.” — parent

 A mural has been on the wall of Michigan's South Arbor Charter Academy for the last 11 years paying tribute to "historical heroes" including Besty Ross, Albert Einstein, the deceased Space Shuttle Columbia astronauts, Mother Teresa and Ghandi. But after so many years, the wall needed a little touching up.

According to a Fox News report, the principal of the charter school, along with a "blue-ribbon" committee she alone appointed, decided not to repair the current mural, but instead paint over it with "modern-day heroes" like Oprah Winfrey, Walt Disney, J.K. Rowling, Maya Angelou, Steve Jobs -- and President Obama.

“This is no longer a hall of heroes. Now we have a hall of celebrities," said parent Craig Bergman. Speaking with Fox News, Bergman expressed frustration that parents were not included in the selection of "heroes." “Previously, it was very well-balanced and respected a lot of different thoughts,” he said. “Instead, it’s become more of a political issue. There’s definitely a certain genre of pictures here.”

Another parent, Todd Holliday, said, “My biggest concern is my kid seeing these murals for the next four years – thinking they represent what a hero is. They might be successful business people but they aren’t really heroes.”

Fox News' Todd Starnes spoke with school spokesperson Jennifer Hoff who defended the updated "heroes" list and explained how their selections met the school's emphasis of "wisdom, respect, gratitude, self-control, perseverance, courage, encouragement, compassion and integrity:”

    She said Rowling shows the children wisdom, Steve Jobs shows the children integrity, Oprah represents compassion, Disney represents courage, and Maya Angelou shows the children perseverance. As for President Obama – well he shows the children encouragement, Hoff said.

Concluding his article, Starnes suggested a few portraits of his own for the wall: "How about the Navy SEALs who got Usama bin Laden? What about the firefighters and police officers who died on 9/11 or those who defended our consulate in Benghazi? Those are true American heroes."
