The fall blood drive put on by student council every year occurred Nov. 4. Over 100 students volunteered to donate their time and blood. “I think its important that if I have the opportunity to give blood and save lives, I do so,” Junior Claudia Wulf said. “I’m saving lives, and that’s pretty cool.”

When their appointment was over, participants received a variety of food and drink options to refuel such as juice boxes and chips. Students participated with the drive starting at 8:30 a.m. and continued until 2:30 p.m. “It went very well,” Senior Ellie Henry said. “everything ran smoothly, we had over 50 volunteers throughout the day as well.”  Henry, along with senior Brenna Yeutsy, were the head of the blood drive committee.
