2019 Middle Tennessee Students of the Year Campaign

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.


Congratulations to our 2019 Middle Tennessee Student of the Year: Marc Stanley from Montgomery Bell Academy!

Marc Stanley

Marc is a junior at MBA, and a member of the football and swim teams. Originally from Greensboro, North Carolina, Marc and his family decided to participate in Students of the Year to honor his grandfather, who battled Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
