McKenna Webb

Auburn, Washington

McKenna Webb, 17, of Auburn, Wash., a senior at Auburn Riverside High School, has organized two “Broadway for #brAvery” fundraising shows, efforts that involved securing the venue, technical support and rehearsal space, developing promotional materials and recruiting more than 100 performers. McKenna started this project to honor the memory of her neighbor, Avery, who died at age 7 from diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, with funds from both benefits going towards research for the disease.
