Richard Monsey, an Eagle Scout and June graduate of the high school’s Class of 2016, recently built and donated a “Buddy Bench” for the playground at May Moore.
According to May Moore Principal Alicia Konecny, the project was suggested by Monsey’s mother, who worked for many years at the school’s cafeteria and supervised its students at recess.
“We are so grateful to Richard for creating this beautiful bench,” said Konecny. “It’s a a terrific addition to our playground and a wonderful way for students to make friends and find a playmate at recess. It is nice to learn that a recent Deer Park graduate is giving back to his community and helping many children in the years to come, through the planning, building and installation of this project.”
