Distinguished Finalist

Aditi Galande

Glendale, Arizona

Aditi Galande, 18, of Glendale, Ariz., a senior at Mountain Ridge High School, led fundraising efforts that helped to collect more than $107,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as part of its Student of the Year initiative. Galvanized by her uncle’s death from cancer, Aditi enlisted the help of local businesses and other students to raise money for the cause during the seven-week campaign; she now helps the organization nominate other student leaders to support the journey to end cancer.
