Northern Lehigh High School’s Student Council conducted a very successful Blood Drive in cooperation with the Miller-Keystone Blood Center. According to Student Council advisor Mrs. Renee Evans, “We met our pre-registration goal of 75 donors, and actually had over 85 people donate with walk-ins from the community.”  The Blood Drive Committee is comprised of co-chairpersons Courtney Blocker and Jessica Pavolko, Annelise Tarafas, Laura Beltz and Rebecca Blocker.

Mrs. Evans noted that the next High School Blood drive is slated for Friday, December 14 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. mark your calendars since the holiday season is a time of great need for donations with the Miller-Keystone Blood Center.
