PRICHARD, Ala -

A Vigor High School teacher is making a difference in the city of Prichard.

As part of the initiative, "Clean Up Prichard" Jason Outlaw was asked to paint a mural on a building in the heart of downtown.

Jason painted an astronaut as a sign that kids should reach for the stars and never give up.

It's already making a difference in some of his students. Jason says every day he reminds them, no matter what the circumstances are, they can rise above and be whatever they choose.

"If somehow one kid sees a mural like this or sees an image like this and says you know, no matter what's going on all around me, there are things I can do and things I can be that I haven't even thought about yet. The limits are endless," said Outlaw.

It is already making a difference in some of in students' lives. Some say now they are striving to become members of the FBI, Navy Seals, and attorneys.
