WHS Student Council Hosts Red Cross Blood Drive
Donations Exceed Target Goal
On Thursday, November 1, 144 lives were saved through the efforts of the Wahoo High School Student Council and the American Red Cross!
Student council members helped organize the Red Cross Blood Drive that was held in the high school gym. Members set a goal of recruiting 35 blood donors. That goal was exceeded when 48 staff members, students and community members showed up to give blood.
“It’s an amazing feeling knowing that I am saving lives. I feel that it is really important to do these things because you never know if you might need the same thing in return,” said WHS junior Tymber States.
Members look forward to saving many more lives in the future through their partnership with the Red Cross by holding blood drives for years to come!
“We believe that we can get students to be lifelong blood donors if we can get them started donating early,” commented WHS Student Council Sponsor Ryan Mueller.
