Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Central PA Chapter 2019 "Student of the Year" Class raised $182,259 to fight blood cancers!

For seven weeks, a dozen exceptional high school students worked tirelessly to raise money to fight blood cancers.  As a group, the Student of the Year (SOY) 2019 class raised $182,259.  The winner set a new SOY fundraising record with $65,507.50.  Over seven weeks, that new record holder (and her motivated, talented team) organized more than 20 fundraising events, boldly approached and met with business owners and potential donors with poise that few high school students have yet developed. The organizational skill, effort and commitment required to set a new fundraising record for SOY Central PA is hard to fathom, but easy to appreciate and admire.

Congratulations Katie Hanshaw for being named the 2019 Central PA Student of the Year by raising $65,507.50 to help find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and all blood cancers.  She also collected the coveted 2019 SOY Citizenship Award, and earned the right to name a research grant.
