Greenhill MS Student Honored for Service Work

Greenhill seventh-grader, Lauren Stock, will receive the generationOn Excellence in Leadership and Service Award at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, hosted by Points of Light.

Lauren is being recognized for her program High School Heroes, which sends emails to students on their 18th birthday, encouraging them to register as a bone marrow donor. Lauren recognized the need for donors after her mother was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma four years ago. After organizing a marrow drive, they found a donor and Lauren’s mother is healthier than ever. Lauren is currently working with Amy Roseman, a Greenhill parent and DKMS donor recruiter in Dallas, in an effort to spotlight DKMS Americas, and its importance. DKMS is the German acronym for Bone Marrow Donor Center.

generationOn is a global youth service movement that allows kids to see firsthand the problems in their community, and gives them the tools to help solve those problems.

*If you are 18 and older, consider registering today. It takes a cheek swab to get registered, yet it is a lifetime commitment to be a donor, as your name is kept in the database from the age of 18-61. Go to www.dkmsamericas.org/register or contact Greenhill parent Amy Roseman at amy@dkmsamericas.org.
