HOW DID YOU BECOME INVOLVED IN YOUR BLOOD DRIVE COMMITTEE?

 I am a member of the National Honors Society and that club organizes the blood drive, so that is how I got involved. 

WHAT ACTIONS DID YOU TAKE TO RECRUIT DONORS AND ENSURE YOUR BLOOD DRIVE WAS SUCCESSFUL?

 We have done multiple presentations in classes to try and convince them to donate blood. To ensure the success of our blood drives, we have set goals to reach for. 

HOW WOULD YOU TAKE THE BLOOD DRIVE TO THE NEXT LEVEL AT YOUR SCHOOL AND ACHIEVE EVEN GREATER SUCCESS?

 I would advertise the blood drive more on social media and the major companies around our small town. I feel as if when blood drives come up, no one is really aware unless they are a student here. 

PLEASE SHARE A NOTEWORTHY LESSON YOU LEARNED AS PART OF THE BLOOD DRIVE COMMITTEE.

 From being a member of the blood drive committee, I have learned that is is very nice to see how many people are willing to give blood to help those in need. I love the idea of giving a small fraction of your time and your blood to potentially save someone’s life. 

WHAT PLANS DO YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE PARTICIPATING IN COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS?

 As I get older and move onto different things, this small community blood drive will always have a place in my heart. I will continue to participate and donate blood in the upcoming blood drives, even when I attend college. 

DESCRIBE YOUR LONG-TERM EDUCATIONAL AND PROFESSIONAL GOALS. 

 In six years I hope to graduate college and get my masters degree in Physician’s Assisting. Coming from a rural area in Arizona, I hope one day to come back here and give to those who are less fortunate. 

LIST YOUR EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, HONORS, EMPLOYMENT AND COMMUNITY SERVICE.

 As well as being involved in the blood drive, I also played on the Varsity girls soccer team for all four years of my high school career. I have also been a member of the National Honor’s Society for two years. Last year, I became a lifeguard and loved teaching kids an important skill such as swimming. This year, I had the great opportunity to get a job at the local physical therapy clinic, there I am able to be humbled and see how great it is to help those in need.
