Health sciences seniors Abby Green and Alyssa Bullard give blood. In a two-day drive, Lorain County JVS students and staff helped collect 122 units for LifeShare Community Blood Services. The company will award one $500 scholarship to JVS graduating seniors for every 35 units of blood collected throughout the year; a Feb. 8-9 blood drive is also being planned. Donors received free T-shirts, window clings, a Hero red cookie, and seniors who donate at the fall and spring drive will earn a red honor graduation cord.
