A blood drive was held April 23 at Perkins County High School with the National Honor Society serving as hosts.
A total of 64 donors were present with 61 units of blood collected. There were 15 first-time donors and seven donors gave double for 14 units of the 61 total, shy of the goal.
Deanne Bishop, sponsor, said, that the number of high school donors, 20, was very high considering the size of the school.
“Those extra donors should help our local drives for the rest of the year, too,” Bishop said. “We received money in accordance with the number of units collected. We earned two, $250 college scholarships from the American Red Cross to hand out to senior NHS members.”
