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.

News and Announcements
- November 9, 2018
Noah is Virginia's 2019 Honored Hero.
Noah was diagnosed with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia on May 11, 2016, and will be in active treatment until September of 2019. Over the course of the past two-and-a-half years, he has had many hospitals stays, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, and weekly visits to clinic. Today, Noah is a smiling 5th grader, spending more days in school than out and playing baseball and basketball when he is well enough to do so. He takes a daily chemotherapy medication and still has frequent clinic visits, but he is getting better and staying positive.
