A portrait of Arlo Funk, the superintendent of the Mineral County School District from 1966 to 1990, has been hung in the lobby of the Arlo Funk Mineral County District Office building. This likeness was artistically drawn by his son, Gary Funk, who is also the current art teacher within the school district.
By using just an over-the-counter pencil, the portrait took shape with shading and highlighting to match a photo of Funk that was taken from a 1974 year book photo.
The brainchild of the idea was Walt Hackford, the current Mineral County School District Superintendent. Hackford felt that a tribute picture was necessary to complete the building and the plaque on the framed and matted piece reflects the years Funk served the school district as a Superintendent.
Artist Funk specifically had the portrait professionally framed, using the true Serpent colors of black and gold, adding the plaque to the bottom of the frame.
