Dylan Peters, 18, of Williston, was a senior at Champlain Valley Union High School and a nationally ranked snowboarder when he was killed in a car crash earlier this year.
Dylan's family donated his organs, corneas and a variety of his tissue to several people on the verge of death. He's now been selected to represent Vermont, the rest of New England and New York on the "Donate Life" float in the Rose Parade.
