Ceremony to honor Michelle Mazzei

The Oak Knoll School community and the friends and family of former fourth-grade teacher Michelle Mazzei invite the public to an event on Sunday, Sept. 9, to honor the memory of Ms. Mazzei, who died in 2005 at age 34 when her bike was struck by a car.

Environmental Volunteers, whose mission is to educate students and the public on environmental issues, will dedicate a room at its EcoCenter in the Palo Alto Baylands in her memory. Ms. Mazzei was an active member of Environmental Volunteers.

The two-hour event will start at 3 p.m. at the center, located at 2560 Embarcadero Road.

Ms. Mazzei died at Stanford Hospital in October 2005 after being struck by a car while riding her bike on Woodside Road near Interstate 280. The 68-year-old driver was looking for the entrance to the freeway and his vehicle entered the bike lane and struck her, according to a Sheriff's Office report.
