You may remember when 17-year-old Natalie Insley of Tyaskin was a passenger in a car when it ran off a road and hit a tree on Sharptown Road in August.
Natalie was killed. The news of her death not only sent shockwaves through her small hometown of Tyaskin – but struck a cord with not only people she knew – but complete strangers.
On the day of Natalie’s memorial service, James M. Bennett High School was full of memories of Natalie and the memories have not faded. In fact, her classmates continue to keep her legacy alive.
Last fall, they showed their “Natalie Strong” spirit at several high school games by wearing ribbons that were Natalie’s favorite colors – coral and teal. In a few weeks, they will continue to honor Natalie’s memory with a concert to help raise money for a scholarship in her name.
The Everything Beautiful Benefit Concert is Sat., April 1 at Headquarters Live in Downtown Salisbury from 3 pm – 9 pm. Tickets will be sold at the door: $15 for adults, $10 for children 7-12, and free admission for children 6 and under, or you can purchase tickets and learn more about the event here.
We get a preview of the band “No Gravity” which is a James M. Bennett High School Student and Alumni Band. They play two originals – “High Tide” and “They Ain’t Ready for Us.”
