Blood drive collects 60 units of blood


Student Council fall blood drive for the American Red Cross took place on last Friday, Nov. 14.

Starting from the start of class to around 3:30 pm, the blood drive collected 60 units of blood, just three units short of their goal of 63 units.

Many blood donors were first time donors, including junior Madelyn Norris.

“Even though I was a little light-headed afterwards, I really enjoyed giving blood,” Norris said. “It’s satisfying knowing that you can help out someone who needs it more than you do.”

Being a first time donor, Norris was a little nervous, but she got over it fast.

“It was definitely worth it,” Norris said. “I plan on doing it again sometime.”

Student Council President senior Amber Klaus, along with other StuCo officers and advisers, helped run the blood drive and keep it organized.

“I think the blood drive went really well,” Klaus said. “I love working it because you just see everyday people becoming heroes by saving lives.”
