CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The graduating class at a New Hampshire high school that gave money raised for a trip to their principal after she was diagnosed with cancer is among those being honored by the American Red Cross and Unitil as "everyday people" doing heroic acts.

The Everyday Heroes awards are being honored Wednesday in Manchester.

The Profile Junior-Senior High School Class of 2015 of Bethlehem is being honored for donating $8,000 to Principal Courtney Vashaw. In December, she learned she was cancer-free.

Others include Raji Gupta of Manchester, who helped a police officer evacuate people from a burning building; Nicholas Tolentino of Exeter for dedication to his support of veterans; Brighid and Douglas Smith of Manchester for giving of themselves to save the life of another; and Bruce Moran of Hollis for dedication to blood donation.

NH1 News is proud to be a sponsor of the event.
