Queen Creek High School students become heroes

Queen Creek High School students become heroes

Giving blood can be tough, but not for the Queen Creek High Bulldogs. Students packed the QCHS gymnasium, rolled up their sleeves and donated blood.

The blood drive was hosted by members of the student-run organization HOSA, which is for students interested in pursuing an education and career in healthcare. HOSA members develop leadership and team skills as they organize events and plan a variety of service activities. The blood drive is just one of the great events planned by HOSA students. For this blood drive, HOSA even got a little help from other student organizations. After giving blood, donors received a cookie made by culinary students.

HOSA had a goal of getting 70 donations; they received 80 surpassing that goal by more than 100 percent. About 20 students were deferred, meaning they will donate at a later date. HOSA will host two more blood drives this school year; one on January 31, the other on April 25, 2017.

With the help of United Blood Services, all the donated blood will be distributed as needed to local hospitals. A big thank you to all students, staff and community members for their donation and support. Queen Creek High School wants to grow this event in hopes of making a positive impact on our community.
