Community All-Stars

For the 14th 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 have shown a commitment to positively impacting the lives of those in their school or community.

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 school Guidance Counselors as Community All-Stars will be showcased in a special printed section to be published by Business First on June 18, 2021 and featured in an easy-to-share interactive section on Business First’s website. 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.

Congratulations to our 2021 Community All-Stars honorees and scholarship recipients. View a complete list of this year’s students. To Learn more about these exceptional high school seniors who make our community healthier, stronger and more inclusive, visit Buffalo Business First.
