Students of the Year
The Students of the Year campaign is a philanthropic leadership development program through which highly motivated, high-school leaders embark on a journey of professional growth, ensuring that they stand out when preparing for college and beyond. During the program, students foster professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management in order to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Student leaders fundraise for LLS in honor of children who are blood cancer survivors. The title Student(s) of the Year is awarded to the candidate or co-candidate team in each community that raises the most funds during the 7-week competition.
We would like to congratulate our 2019 Students of the Year class for collectively raising over $85,000 in seven weeks. We are beyond proud of our students and their achievements. We would also like to announce our 2019 Student of the Year, Everett Hume! Everett ran a successful campaign and hosted a charity poker tournament, Game On to Fight Blood Cancer, where celebrity bounties from the Las Vegas sports community from Top Rank, UFC, Vegas Golden Knights and Vegas Aces, came together in a successful fight against blood cancer!
Huge shout out to our 2nd and 3rd place winners, Kate Wong and Muhammad Shamim! Both ran excellent campaigns that involved their community and peers! We are so proud of our 2019 Students of the Year class!
