Today, marked Waynesville High School's semi-annual Blood Drive, and our students are amazing!  We have had yet another successful drive with a full schedule consisting mostly of students, but also a few teacher (Ryan Hill and Clay Cleaver), our high school principal Dr. Sam Ison, and even a few parents for the event. 

We have so many reasons to be proud of these students for giving selflessly in such a way.   

The Student Council volunteers were amazing as they worked to organize the event, set up the donation space, keep the event running smoothly and serve up the sloppy joes!  



  • 49 people registered to give blood!
  • 39 were successful! (36 was the goal)
  • 108% percent of goal!
  • 22 First Time Donors!  WOW!
  • Over 117 lives will be positively impacted as a result of total donations!


Great job everyone!!  Waynesville Proud!
