A mural in memory of Marine Sgt. Jay M. Hoskins now occupies part of the hallway at North Lamar High School. The 2003 graduate was painted by senior art student Alex Copeland, right of the mural, who also will be serving in the U. S. Marines. Left of the mural are NLHS Assistant Principal Patrick Fuller and step-father and mother of Sgt. Hoskins, Chris and Michelle Widner. Others alongside Copeland are Alex Nava (recently enlisted in the Marines), Daniel Beltran (assisted with the mural), Adriana Perez (assisted with the mural and is anticipating enlisting into the Marines), Brian Lutz (recently enlisted in the Marines), NLHS art instructor Brandi Peel and Blake Lee (recently enlisted in the Marines).
