Students Ava, Katelyn and Lily Launch Leukemia & Lymphoma Society "Student of the Year" Campaigns (By Laura Duggan, Director of Marketing & Communications)

It says a lot about our students that we have two groups from St. Michael's participating in this effort to help fund the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's work on eradicating blood cancers, which is launched today and continues for the next seven weeks.

St. Michael's twin sisters Katelyn and Lily Peter '23 have joined up with Team Yari, headed by St. Stephen's student and friend Yara Ben-Musa. You can read their statement and find the donation link here:

Junior Ava Bautch is leading a group of St. Michael's students as their candidate representative for "Students of the Year" that includes: Ginny Daboub,  Caleb Eby, Jen Fang, Cadence Layne, Avery Lindsey, Jude Turneville, Jack Urano, and Lily Watkins.

According to their website, the Students of the Year Campaign is “a six to eight-week initiative in which nominated high school students, or teams of 2-3 students, participate in a fundraising challenge to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Candidates raise money in honor of a young, local patient hero who is battling or in remission from a blood cancer.”

To lead, a student undergoes an application process, including answering essay questions, before qualifying as a candidate. For example, Ava's acceptance letter is included here.
While campaigning, students practice leadership, communication, and marketing skills, and become familiar with finance and budgeting tasks.
