Buddy Bench

June 26, 2014
Lake Placid News
On Thursday, June 19, WSLP-FM announcer Paul Varga (seated in front, far left) conducted a live broadcast from the Lake Placid Elementary School playground announcing the school’s new Buddy Bench. The grade 5 Anti-Bullying Crew sent in a grant application for the bench to the Lake Placid/Wilmington Connecting Youth and Communities Coalition, which provided the funding. The bench was built by Dave Mayberry and decorated by the Anti-Bullying Crew. The idea for the Buddy Bench came from a newspaper article forwarded to Mary Michelfelder. School officials extend a special thank-you to the grade 5 students in the Anti-Bullying Crew.
