Students redesign carabao statues

In honor of Mes Chamoru, the St. John’s School Service Club, Art Club, and National Junior Honor Society redesigned two of Guam Premier Outlet’s carabao statues. The statues represent the island’s traditional beast of burden during Guam’s long Spanish era,  and various businesses, including GPO, purchased these statues to place around the island to enhance visitors’ experience as well as colorfully showcase an icon of Guam’s culture. GPO made a donation of $2,500 to be split among the three organizations.

The newly designed statues are an example of the students’ commitment to promoting cultural exchange and community spirit, not to mention determination and hard work, just like the traits of the carabao.
