Elizabeth Mamros, 16, of McMurray. Young Achiever. Elizabeth was one of 15 students around the country to win Mylan Specialty L.P.’s “Get Schooled in Anaphylaxis Challenge,” aimed at helping kids understand the potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. Her proposal for an anaphylaxis awareness week would have different activities and dress codes for each day, like a “busy bee” day where students dress in black and yellow and talk about bee-sting allergies. She will receive a $2,000 college scholarship.
