Community All-Stars

For the thirteenth consecutive year, Independent Health and Business First have teamed up to offer a program that identifies and honors our Community All-Stars, a group of Western New York high school seniors who exemplify outstanding qualities that make our community a great place to live. Community All-Stars demonstrate the following qualities:

  • Be of good character.
  • Have made a difference in their community through their community service.
  • Embrace the diversity of students throughout their school.
  • Be friendly and open to all.

Students nominated by their schools as Community All-Stars will be showcased in a special section to be published by Business First on June 12, 2020. In addition, these students will be recognized with a plaque during an awards ceremony/assembly by their school. Five randomly selected Community All-Stars will receive a $1,000 scholarship.
