On Monday, January 19th, the JMH Blood Mobile visited Holston High School. Students participating in the blood drive this year were provided with breakfast beforehand, and were given a special T-shirt for volunteering. The blood collected will be used to save lives throughout the region. Twenty-nine students took part in the event this year, and with one pint taken from each, we managed to provide a significant amount of blood for this FBLA service project. Junior Taylor B. and Sophomore Elijah C. are seen helping out on the blood mobile in the photo above.
Some student donors were asked to provide their thoughts on the blood drive: Senior Elijah W. said, “I can’t wait to do it again” Sophomore Nicki T. states that, “It’s nice knowing that I could possibly save someone." Senior Logan C. added that “Whatever you do, always give 100%; Unless you are giving blood!” Fellow Senior Nick W. stated that, “Donating blood is such a simple thing that can have a huge impact. It makes me happy to know that my small contribution can save a person’s life.”
