National Honor Society hosts blood drive

The Nevada High School National Honor Society Blood Drive, held on Wednesday, Nov. 14, was a success. The National Honor Society collaborated with LifeServe Blood Center to host the drive at Gates Hall. The effort yielded twenty-five units of blood and two double reds from the thirty-four people that checked in. The collected blood will save seventy-nine lives. Special thanks to all that signed up and volunteered to make the activity a success. Madison Merfeld, NHS president, chaired the blood drive committee, with help from numerous volunteers. Student volunteers included Christopher Dobernecker, Alyssa Schaeffer, Emily Haywood, Mikaela Rans, Courtney Davis and Madison Abraham. The blood drive wrapped around 6 p.m., and Izzy Kapustka and Clara Sporrer assisted with helping the Life Serve Blood Center crew load their equipment. Izzy and Clara also folded chairs and stacked tables in Gates Hall to assist the custodian. Kevin Cooper, NHS advisor, assisted with clean up and load out.
