Buddy Bench at Kirby's Mill Elementary

This is a mosaic base for a Buddy Bench which is located in the playground at Kirby's Mill Elementary School in Medford NJ. I worked with school faculty, both present and past, to create the border tiles which are dedicated to former school nurse Kathy Frame. Kathy passed away a few years ago from cancer and the staff wanted to create a memorial mosaic for her. She was much beloved by all and is very much still missed. Thank you to art teacher Jessica Evans who worked with students to make the mosaic tile fill. The tiles represent all the things Kathy loved, especially the children. Kathys husband attended the dedication and was the first person to sit on the new bench.💙
