Who was Shannon? 

Shannon Benton was a proud supporter of the be nice. program in her children’s schools and in life. Although Shannon passed away on January 5, 2017 after a long battle with cancer, her memory lives on in all those she touched with her kindness and friendship. This outing is but a small part of her legacy meant to recognize and continue her promotion of the be nice. movement.
