Thanks to all of our volunteers and those who donated blood during the Elder High School Hoxworth Fall Blood Drive held on Wednesday,October 29, 2014. There were 44 students, staff and faculty members who registered to donate blood. 39 lifesaving units of blood were collected.
Our thanks to the volunteers who did a fantastic job: Seniors Mitch Moorhead, Andrew Finn, Luke Jett, Evan Kandra; Junior Spencer Kandra; parent volunteers, Mrs. Krista Moore and Mrs. Kelly Tiernan.
The next Hoxworth Blood Drive, scheduled for the 2014 - 2015 school year is the Spring Blood Drive on Tuesday, March 17, 2015.
