Two UNC students finalists for People Magazine’s hero award


Two UNC students have emerged ahead of a year’s worth of fellow “heroes” to be named finalists for People Magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Hero award. Krissi Fajgenbaum, a freshman, and Gabriel Whaley, a senior, both founded nonprofit organizations that caught the magazine’s attention and put them in the running for a $10,000 prize to use for their respective causes. Of the nine finalists from across the nation, Fajgenbaum and Whaley are the only college students. (Daily Tar Heel)
