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.
Our 2021 Students of the Year winners are twins Caroline & Jack Kessenich; juniors at Regis Jesuit High School. Caroline and Jack raised more than $150,000 for the mission of LLS - the first team in Colorado to cross that incredible fundraising level! Congratulations to all 2021 Students of the Year candidates and team members who set a new local record during a global pandemic. We are currently accepting nominations for 2022 candidates.
