SARAH SMITH – WILLIAMS HIGH SCHOOL
 
HOW DID YOU BECOME INVOLVED IN YOUR SCHOOL’S BLOOD DRIVE COMMITTEE?
I became involved with my schools blood drive by dedicating my time to make phone calls and making sure that every one I contacted got a appropriate appointment that would fit their schedule. I also made posters that are appealing to the students at our school. 
WHAT ACTIONS HAVE YOU TAKEN TO RECRUIT DONORS AND ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF YOUR BLOOD DRIVES?
As a leader of the blood drives at Williams High school, I assured that every student and everyone in my community knew about the blood drive and certain rules that applied to donate blood. I went to every class to handout permission slips to those that were eligible and interested. I also tried to persuade people to donate by letting people know about the people that need the blood. I told the story of a little girl in Arizona that needed the blood and it changed a few minds. 
HOW WOULD YOU TAKE THE BLOOD DRIVE TO THE NEXT LEVEL AT YOUR SCHOOL TO ACHIEVE EVEN GREATER SUCCESS?
I would start to promote the blood drive a little more in advance than I have in the past blood drives. I would hang flyers all around my town and even print out the stories of those in need of blood to hand to people with the permission slip and when I post flyers. 
PLEASE SHARE A NOTEWORTHY LESSON LEARNED FROM BEING A PART OF THE BLOOD DRIVE COMMITTEE. 
Being a part of the blood drive committee has shown me how everyone can be a hero. It can be the smallest decision that can impact someone else’s life tremendously. The lesson I learned out of this, is that I can do so many great things even with the stuff I do everyday. I learned from the people who volunteered that taking thirty minutes out of my day to help a good cause, makes a huge difference. 
WHAT PLANS DO YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE PARTICIPATING IN COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS?
I plan on joining the student body government at Yavapai College this year and continuing it throughout my years in college. The council they have offers many hours of community service each week and allows me to help those students in need on campus. 
DESCRIBE YOUR LONG-TERM EDUCATIONAL AND PROFESSIONAL GOALS.
After I graduate in May of this year, I plan to attend Yavapai Community College to start my degree in Human and Social Services. I plan to attend Northern Arizona University eventually to achieve my Masters in Social Work. After I complete college, I plan on working with children in unlivable homes. I want to make a difference in children’s lives and let them know the world is a good place.
