A Mattoon Middle School student leadership group presented a table with seating to Sullivan Elementary School in memory of Tyson Mendoza.

Erin VanDeursen, kindergarten teacher Sullivan Elementary School, and her students, accepted the table from the MMS student leadership group and their sponsor MMS teacher Blair Dosch.  Mendoza was a student in VanDeursen’s class.

A blue plaque, Tyson’s favorite color, is centered on the table top.  The inscription reads, “In Loving Memory of Tyson Mendoza from your friends at Mattoon Middle School.” 

The funds to purchase the round table and seating were collected during advisory periods at MMS.  A total of $375 was collected with the MMS Parent Pack agreeing to match $100 and First Neighbor Bank of Mattoon matching $250.

The remaining donated amount was allocated to Mattoon School district’s donation efforts for Tyson’s family.
