Donor goal achieved during fall blood drive

October 11, 2010

Jacob Schultz, Okeene freshman, finishes up his first-ever blood donation Oct. 7, in the Ranger Room at Northwestern Oklahoma State University. More than 400 donors participated in the Oklahoma Blood Institute blood drive sponsored by members of Northwestern’s Presidential Leadership Class.

Northwestern Oklahoma State University students and employees surpassed the goal of 260 usable units by providing 330 units of blood during the Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) blood drive recently.

More than 400 people signed up to donate during the blood drive sponsored by the President’s Leadership Class. The PLC members worked hard to fill the Ranger Room with student and employee donors.

PLC members would like to thank Chartwell’s for providing hotdogs for lunch, and the Rowdy Rangers for preparing lunch for donors. An MP3 player was given away after the blood drive, courtesy of Sights and Sounds/Radio Shack. Kayla Gilchrist, Alva junior, was the winner of the drawing.

Northwestern will sponsor another blood drive on Dec. 2. Donors are allowed to donate every 56 days.
