Who and Why?

North Collins Jr.-Sr. High School has selected two candidates for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) 2019 Students of the Year Campaign. Both juniors, Maddie Gaglione and Henry Jarzynski, were chosen because of their leadership skills and motivation to make a difference.

What is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) 2019 Students of the Year Campaign

Students of the Year is a seven-week philanthropic leadership development program during which students foster professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management in order to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world's largest nonprofit fighting blood cancer. The title Students of the Year is awarded to the co-candidates in each community who raises the most funds during the competition.
