Students witnessed what happens when they all get together and do a good deed during a school assembly.
“The Tri-Village students find perfect use for ‘imperfection,’” said Shawn Thomas as she spoke to those seated in the crowded auditorium. “Wow, we are so proud of the Tri-Village students, staff and community in making this memorial bench project a huge success.”
Students have been collecting simple bottle caps and tub lids, which were taken to Green Tree Plastics in Evansville, Indiana. The caps weighed in at 1,200 pounds, then were made into three memorial benches; one for the late Susie Midlam, a teacher, the late Mitchel McCabe, a former graduate, and Johnathan Kinnison, a student who would have been a junior this year.
