FOURTH RUNNER UP – Santino Diaz-Palma – Struthers High School
A young man decided to become an organ, eye and tissue donor, and he had no idea that he was going to sadly finish one of the many things on his bucket list- to save a life. This young man’s name is Kevin Fox, and in a tragic accident that killed him and 3 other teenagers, he is not remembered as the teenager who died too young. He is revered as a hero because his organs, eye and tissue donations saved the life of more than 4 individuals, and inspired others to register to become donors too. Lifebanc is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to saving lives through organ, eye, and tissue donations, but you have the potential to change someone’s world forever.
