Andrew Olsen, senior at Manti High, built and painted seven buddy benches to donate to elementary MHS senior makes benches for elementary schoolsschools in the county.  The purpose of a buddy bench is a way to help students make new friends.  If a child is feeling lonely or without a friend, they go sit on the bench and that is a signal to other kids that they are in need of a buddy.

Andrew loves to serve and doesn’t want anyone to ever feel alone and without a friend.  He thought this would be a great way to help make it easier for kids to express their feelings and make new friends.
