Blood Drive Wrap-Up


Thank you to all who participated this week during our Semi-Annual Blood Drive.  The event was a huge success all due to the many volunteers of Student Council officers and members it took to make it happen and ultimately, the student and staff blood donors. 

The blood donors are truly amazing and dedicated to give of themselves in such a way.  This effort is all part of shaping them as great humans and teaches so much more than just getting out of class and laying on a table for an hour.  Hopefully, this will translate into a lifelong dedication and commitment.  Several of our students received special recognition for having donated 5 times, and we even had one student reach 6 donations!!  Students who give a minimum of 3 times before graduation will be honored by wearing a red cord with their cap and gown.  

Our staff members who donated collectively have given a total of 102 times!!  

In total, the results are as follows....  we had over 45 units of blood received (this will save 132 lives in our community!! -WOW!)  and 18 first timers (which is AWESOME!!)  and were at 119% of our goal!!!  

So, overall a fantastic morning for Wayne Local Schools!

Thank you for Another Successful Community Blood Drive

We're super proud of our students of Waynesville High school who gave selflessly of themselves this week for our semi-annual blood drive.  These students look forward to the event, taking time out of their already busy days to donate blood.

Blood cannot be manufactured EVER, and this is the ONLY way for blood banks to replenish their supplies, which are used at area hospitals, as well as for major disasters such as the devastating Hurricane Harvey.  We had a full schedule of staff and students who gave blood this week, and they should feel very proud of themselves.  

Below are the highlights!

·         47 people registered to donate

·         40 people were able to donate

·         108% of blood drive goal

·         21 First Time Donors

·         Overall, your lifesaving event saved over 120 lives!
