Carter BloodCare will be back again for another blood drive in partnership with Student Council. The drive is in the arena and auditorium foyer and is scheduled for Wednesday, April 26 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Our blood drives give the chance for Lewisville High School students to donate blood and really make a difference to those in need,” senior community service officer Tori King said.

Accompanying King to help, junior Claire Marrone will also be directing the drive as she is next year’s community service officer. With such a success in the fall, StuCo is hopeful to see an even bigger turnout this time around.

“We collected 218 pints of blood [last semester],” Carter BloodCare consultant Susan Holt said. “Lewisville High School is one of only a few of our high schools that has exceeded their projection this school year.”

Students must be at least 17 years old in order to donate blood, though anyone from the community is welcome. Sign up is available at lunch in the cafeteria, and students must turn in a permission form signed by their parents to participate.

“Many students don’t necessarily enjoy the donation part but feel good about helping others by giving,” StuCo adviser Allison Stamey said. “They get a cord and free T-shirt for graduation if they gave twice this year.”

By participating in this event, students are able to help those in need not only by saving lives but also by spreading the word throughout the local community.

“Every time I donate blood I get extremely nervous,” senior Alissa Rybak said. “It’s so cool that I’ve already helped people in such a major way, even though I’m only 18. So despite the nerves, I love donating blood.”
