Juniors Isabelle Hanlon and Briley Strine Named 2020 LLS Students of the Year
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Student of the Year Campaign is an exciting leadership development and philanthropy program in which high school students participate in a fundraising competition to benefit LLS and the mission to cure blood cancers. The candidate or team who raises the most money at the end of the program is named Student of the Year for their local chapter. After being nominated by last year’s winners Erin Pearson ‘20 and Alexandra Williamson ‘20, Archmere candidates Isabelle Hanlon and Briley Strine, along with support from family and friends, raised $142,064.86 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society fight against blood cancers and were named Students of the Year!
The candidates from the northern Delaware chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society alone have raised over $450,000 over the course of the seven weeks.
In 2017, Archmere Headmaster Dr. Michael A. Marinelli ‘76 also accepted the challenge and began his Man of the Year campaign. After raising over $30,000 with the help of 225 donors, Dr. Marinelli was named the 2017 Delaware Chapter's Man of the Year.
Congratulations to the 2020 Students of the Year, Isabelle and Briley!
