ROANOKE, Va. – One company is highlighting all that Roanoke has to offer while giving back to the arts – on the ETS Recruit building, you can now see a mural featuring some of the things Roanoke is known for, like outdoor recreation and the iconic star.

“To celebrate all things we love about Roanoke. In a 20 to 30 minute drive you can be at McAfee Knob, and then on the back of the building, in a 20 to 30 second walk you can be on the Greenway,” said Benjamin Kennedy, ETS Recruit Business Operations and Recruitment Coordinator.

ETS is a recruiting firm for physicians that prides Roanoke in being a career destination with high paying job opportunities.

“We wanted to celebrate Roanoke and all the great things it offers. Among those is an awesome career destination with a new mural on the side of their building,” President of ETS Recruit, Mark Kennedy said.

Scott Noel, also known as “Toobz Muir” painted the mural on the building, company officials said. It took less than two months to complete – we’re told the project began on October 6 and was finished on November 29.

You can see the mural at the ETS Recruit building located at 319 McClanahan Street in Southwest Roanoke. It’s a colorful culmination of Star City staples, in an effort to represent and recruit.
