2012-11 - Kendra Cimaglia

In 2010 doctors diagnosed Kendra Cimaglia, a freshman at Johnston High School, with a malignant brain tumor. Over the course of her two year treatment protocol, she overcame many challenges and despite being sick from her treatments Kendra stayed on track educationally with home tutoring. Even more amazing Kendra wanted to give back to the people who helped her at the Tomorrow Fund.

While at the Tomorrow Fund Kendra came up with an idea to make bracelets out of soda tabs and instead of keeping the profits Kendra has raised more then $8,000 and created Tabz-4-Tomorrow.

Metta means love, compassion, kindness, empathy, and Kendra embodies all of those qualities. Metta Students Foundation is proud to honor her with a grant.
