Thanks to the generous support and donations the memorial has received through it's various fundraising efforts, in a very short time we have been able to establish these valuable programs:

  • Our L.E.A.P. pilot program launched this fall in four Henderson middle schools. The program is aligned to the current middle school health curriculum to help students make responsible and healthy lifestyle choices in today’s changing society. L.E.A.P. supports efforts to ready eighth grade students in the transition to high school. The Lindsay Bennett Memorial, along with health and science teachers and administrators from the Clark County School District, structured a comprehensive unit focused on decision-making that meets the Common Core State Standards and the Nevada State Standards by connecting resources in our community. 2013 & Beyond
