Courtesy of San Benito High School:
San Benito High School on June 4 held a dedication for the memorial bench in honor of 2017 SBHS alumnus Nathan Van de Mark, who was a peer helper with the Life Skills program while a student.
Nathan’s mother, Michelle Van De Mark, and her friend Cindy Jordan in December 2018 presented the Life Skills Department with a check for $7,443 in memory of Nathan, to benefit programs for “Nathan’s Buddies.”
Nathan’s grandparents, Mel and Yvonne Silveira, and his uncle, Jo Jo Silveira, are shown here with the bench.
The friendship message below was created for the dedication.
