Breaking a world record is a dream many wish they could one day accomplish, and thanks to a teacher in Fort Worth, 14 of his students may soon get to reach that goal. The art teacher not only wanted to break world record, but create something that represented their school and community. Together they created a massive paper snowflake that will hopefully soon be named a Guinness World Record.
William West is an art teacher at Dunbar High School, but soon he will be able to add world record holder to his resume as well. The teacher recently led a group of 14 students in creating a 58 feet wide paper snowflake that would beat the previous record of 44 feet and 6 inches. According to Fort Worth Star Telegram, the snowflake was completed earlier this month, but the group is still awaiting a call from Guinness confirming they have achieved a world record.
“The best compliment I can give my kids is they did not expect me to have all the answers, they had to solve these problems and overcome these obstacles in order to succeed,” said West. The group’s design even includes the words ““Dunbar” and “Fort Worth.” Thanks to this teacher, these students will definitely have a high school experience they will never forget.
