The American Red Cross bloodmobile at the high school was a resounding success, with 61 donors.
The success puts Key Club in a position to earn at least a $750 scholarship for Key Club members.
The high turnouit may have been helped by what students learned in class. Key Club advisor Veronica Swart noted that fellow teachers Sandy Sturchio and Jill Sheldon introduced their students to the blood donation process by integrating the properties of blood into their class lessons.
Anna King also set up a Donate Life Booth and assisted blood donors in becoming registered organ donors.
Harry Harper, Taylor Madeiros, Diana Morse and the Key Club members in Susan Cole's class – Nick Felter, Dakota LaPort, Amber Rhodes and Breanna Tomlinson – all helped make a double batch of marshmallow bars to hand out to donors. Diana also made the announcements.
"Overall, it was another super successful Bloodmobile," said Swart. "Our Key Club workers were respectful, supportive and effective at their stations. I am so proud of them all. And it always amazes me how many students and staff come out to donate as well."
