Tate Bladon: Countdown 2 Escape Building
In 2020, Frisco Wakeland High School student Tate Bladon designed an initiative to bring color and renovation to the buildings in the Frisco Rail District. He engaged his peers and other members of the community to unite others through art, which can help improve mental health by decreasing stress and anxiety.
