Students Raise Funds For Cancer Research

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is now offering a leadership development and philanthropy program for high school students known as Students of the Year. High school students in the Palm Beach area will compete to raise funds to invest in research for lifesaving treatments for blood cancer patients. Every dollar raised counts as one “vote.” The candidate team with the most “votes” at the end of the seven-week competition earns the title Students of the Year, and a $2,500 college scholarship. For more information, contact Kellie Baker, campaign manager, at (561) 616-8682 or Shown above are this year’s candidates: (Front row) Claudia Cabral, Lexi Bolton, Anika Varsani, Emily Rose Thiele, Vanessa Vasquez and Kellie Baker; and (back row) Megan DeSouza, Alyssa Goldman, Isabella Vega, Amanda Viola, Reese Kline, Samara Smukler and Naya James-Faulkner.
