On May 3rd Heritage High School held a blood drive by the American Red Cross. This wasn’t just any school blood drive; this was someone’s senior project. Senior Hunter Armstrong was in charge of the project.
190 students signed up to donate blood, but only 120 went through with it. Armstrong said that this was the goal this year was to reach 120 people donating.
The reason why Armstrong chose this project is because all the hospitals in the Clark County have a shortage of blood. In other words, there is a high demand for blood.
“The blood drive went very well, this was a student-lead process not with an adviser” says Armstrong. So the success was all through students, not just advisors. This was a good project and was very successful in the end.
