Mayor's Honorees: March 16, 2021
This week, the City Council proudly recognized the work of Team Illuminate for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Students of the Year Campaign, and Dr. Bradley Chappell, Attending Physician at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center Emergency Department. The City Council also proclaimed the month of March to be American Red Cross Month.
A number of local students, including Naomi Kao and Vivian Chen of Team Illuminate, participated in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s 2021 Students of the Year Campaign, a philanthropic leadership development program for high school students. Student leaders fundraise for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of children who are blood cancer survivors. For more information on the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, visit the Students of the Year website.
Dr. Bradley Chappell has displayed the highest levels of professionalism during this extraordinarily challenging and stressful time and has worked tirelessly to acquire needed supplies to maintain patient and staff safety and build successful strategies to improve community health.
The American Red Cross supports local communities by sheltering, feeding, and providing emotional support to disaster victims, providing 40% of the nation’s blood supplies, teaching life-saving skills, providing humanitarian aid, and supporting military members and their families.

The City thanks the students who participated in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s 2021 Students of the Year Campaign, Dr. Chappell, and the American Red Cross for their inspiring work.
