On November 27, North hosted the American Red Cross Blood Drive. Students and staff had the opportunity to sign up, pick a time, and  donate blood that goes into saving lives.

North students have gone above and beyond the donation goal, saving 189 lives through donating 65 units of blood. Of the 76 students who showed up to donate, only 12 were unable to donate for various reasons. The goal set was 57 units, which was exceeded by 8.

If a student donates blood at least three times during their academic career at North, they receive a cord to be worn at graduation.

The drive even had to end early because of the turnout. Velya Randolph, STUCO sponsor, said, “We had to reject students who showed up later in the day because we ran out of supplies.”
