"You're Somebody's Type": Blood Drive Spring 2019

Our final blood drive of the 2018-2019 school year came to an end, and it was, again, an amazingly successful school year. Though the average around the Tri-County for public schools is 30 registered donors this time of the year, LCCTC successfully registered 85 donors today. None of this is done without the cooperation of so many different people.

The HA students work very hard for these drives. They obtain all of the sign ups, put the signs around the school and place every student/staff onto the roster. It is truly student-led.

Senior Health Assistant Caryn Brandes worked very hard for weeks in advance to prepare the spreadsheet sent to all of the staff along with cross-checking all sign ups with permission slips. If you see her, congratulate her. She has been a vital student-leader for these blood drives.  

Along with impacting over 240 individuals as a result of this blood drive, the blood drive allowed the HA students to be able to obtain clinical experience with registration, communication skills, filing, observing for post donor reaction and obtaining post donation vital signs.  

The Health Assistant Department would like to thank you ALL for a wonderful year of blood donations! And remember — You are somebody’s type! — blood type, that is.
