Yadkin Early College High School (YEC) staff and students responded to the severe shortage of donated blood when they held a recent Red Cross blood drive on campus. YEC extended a thank you to the volunteers and donors who made the drive a success.
A total of 29 units of blood were collected, exceeding their goal of 25. Student volunteers included: Miranda Angel, Luis Santos, Damain Jaimes, Jessenia Ortega, Stevi Wiles, Anna Thompson, Terra Hedgecock, Mikenna Goodman, Raquel Garcia, Destiny DiClemente, Carolyn Quach, Melina Hall, Sandra Rodriguez, Eleazar Maldonado, Diana Hernandez and Tristen Bunton.
Michelle Kreh, staff YEC coordinator, invited the community to watch for another blood drive in the upcoming school year during fall semester.
