A Philanthropic Leadership Program for Exemplary High School Students

The Students of the Year Campaign is an seven week initiative in which nominated high school students participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Georgia Chapter. Nominated students are selected as Students of the Year candidates via the LLS selection committee. Selection is based upon an application submitted by each interested student. Candidates will raise money in honor of a patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. The candidate(s) who raise the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student or Students of the Year. In addition, there is a Citizenship Award for the student candidate(s) who have demonstrated exceptional integration of the LLS mission throughout their campaign.

Dear Aiken High School Rotary Interact Club Hero,

I hope you are well and that you are enjoying virtual learning. This is a challenging year like no other, but we are still the Aiken High School Rotary Interact Club and we can still serve our school, our community, and our world! That never changes, does it?

And we are going to help kill cancer here in Aiken and everywhere else on earth.

So please read the two-page flyer below about a wonderful service opportunity. Participants will not only take part in the fight against cancer, they may become eligible for a generous scholarship and grow in the process of doing so.

You may download the flyer if you like.

What is leukemia

Please contact me if you are interested. We really want to support this effort.

If you would like to chat with the parent of a student who won this competition last year, please contact Mrs. DeeDee Orr Perry at Deedeeperry@me.com. She’ll be happy to talk to you about her son’s experience and the many benefits of participating.

Thank you for putting Service above Self when needed! I am very proud to be your sponsor, AHS Rotary Interact Hero.

And I always will be, because you are awesome.

Sincerely,
