The annual Red Cross Blood Drive hosted by the High School Community Service Club will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11 in the Gordon Multipurpose Room. We appreciate any students, faculty, parents, and alumni who donate. In order to be eligible, students must be 16 years old by the date of the drive and have parental permission. Students ages 17 and older are able to give consent without a parent. Faculty, staff, parents, and alumni are welcome to donate too.
