This is what I collected from LaGrone Academy. When President John Smyers asked me to take over as Buddy Bench coordinator, I said yes for 3 reasons…
We hope to have enough plastic to take to Indiana where they will grind and process it into plastic lumber to create a bench like this.
1) I love to travel and looked forward to going to Indiana. 
2) I wanted my school to get one. 
3) I was a former school counselor and gave many guidance lessons about inclusion, bullies, victims, and bystanders. So this project means something to me. 
Lisa Bonneau has said she would go with me. I have plenty of time this summer. I’m hoping we have what we need soon.
