Ellis Student Nominated for Student of the Year Program
Ellis student Rebekah Rapp, Class of 2024, has been nominated for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Students of the Year program. A philanthropic leadership development program, Students of the Year fosters skills such as marketing, fundraising, entrepreneurship, and project management in order to raise funds to fight blood cancers.
“Cancer impacts almost everyone which is why I am passionate about giving back,” shared Rebekah. “LLS is going beyond blood cancer as the research they fund has gone on to help many other cancer patients including breast, bone, and lung cancer to name just a few. I have built a team of fellow classmates here at Ellis and other family and friends to help with our mission.”
Rebekah has just seven weeks to raise awareness and funds in support of LLS and its mission to find a cure for blood cancers. She will be raising funds until March 26, if you would like to support her efforts, you can make a donation online here.
