Welcome to the 2021 Lowcountry Students of the Year homepage! For seven weeks 15 amazing candidate teams will fundraise for LLS in honor of two local children battling blood cancer. At the end of the seven week campaign one candidate team will receive the title Student of the Year! 

Meet 2021 Honored Hero Claire



Claire is an energetic, loving and amazingly kind 14-year-old 8th grader. She loves to play soccer, and when she isn’t on the soccer pitch she can be found watching her favorite premier league team, Manchester City, surfing the waves at Sullivan's Island, taking her two furry companions on a walk or learning new songs on her guitar.

Claire was diagnosed with b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia on August 8th, 2019. Over the past 17 months, she has been on the excruciating front-lines of chemotherapy and looks forward to finishing treatment in December of 2021.
