In Memory of Michael

Celia Shortt Goodyear/Boulder City Review

A bench honoring the late Michael Manteris was dedicated Tuesday at Mitchell Elementary School. Students at all four Boulder City public schools collected money for the bench. Enough funds were raised to place another at Hemenway Valley Park. Manteris died March 30, 2017, at age 12 after a six-month battle with cancer. The bench features one of his inspirational sayings: “Make today the best day ever.”
