HPHS Student Donates Bench to Burnett Center

Topeka Public Schools would like to thank Highland Park High School sophomore Dante Magers for his generous donation the the district's administration building; he built a beautiful bench that will grace Burnett Center's front walkway.




Through "Rock the Block," a City of Topeka and HPHS program, Dante was able to construct benches to donate to organizations around the community. He has built and donated eight benches so far.



Great work, Dante-- thank you so much for sharing your talents with us!!
