The Robert C. Byrd High School Eagle Cabinet and National Honor Society hosted their third American Red Cross Blood Drive for the 2018-2019 school year on Friday, March 15, 2019.For the entire year, the school was able to make a donation of 77 units of blood. For every one unit of blood, three individuals will be affected, making that a total of 231 lives positively effected because of the students at RCB High School.
“My fellow classmates are eager to sign up, and they encourage each other to donate to the drive, because we know that giving blood is a wonderful way to give back to the community and people are in need of blood”, said Kayla Means, National Honor Society President.
In addition to the students being involved, the staff also makes sure they are involved in going through the donation. “Our students do a great job, and it’s wonderful we have the chance to help people through the donations without even leaving work”, said Stacie Aliff, RCBHS teacher.
The students of RCB are already planning their next drive, which will take place over the summer at Simpson Creek Baptist Church, in Bridgeport.
National Honor Society advisor, Rhonda Reed expressed her admiration of RCB’s students.
“Our students at RCB are always looking for ways to support the community. They have a way of putting things into motion and it begins a snowball effect of everything coming together, our students care about the community”, she said.
