Community turns out strong for school blood drive

A special thank you goes out to all within Warren County High School and the community who helped prove Warren County is truly a giving community.

On Wednesday, Nov. 11, Warren County High School's SkillsUSA chapter sponsored the first of two blood drives planned for the school this year.

Almost 50 students, faculty members, staff, and community citizens answered the call to give the gift of life. Each person went through the screening process that eliminated those who might be ineligible to donate for any number of reasons. Twenty-six units of blood were actually collected, potentially saving as many as 78 lives.

SkillsUSA officers were on site in Ms. Strait's room to provide assistance to Sheppard Community Blood Center. Students assisting in the blood drive were: President Carrie Vallery, Vice President Tyneisha Grier, Secretary Najaliqua Bradshaw, Treasurer Ralph Callahan, Reporter Kaleshia Williams, and Parliamentarian Sa'sha Nealey.

WCHS will hold a second blood drive in the spring. Anyone interested in giving the gift of life is encouraged to participate.
