Superintendent Kyle Repucci is pleased to share that Spaulding High School hosted a successful blood drive late last month.
On Wednesday, Jan. 19, students in the school’s Health Science Technology program worked with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive, with students in the program shadowing and observing as professionals drew blood — and supporting their classmates who donated.
In all, 40 students and five staff members donated blood, netting 23 pints of blood that will be used to help patients in need.
“This was a great opportunity for our whole school community, both for the students who are aspiring to work in the healthcare field and for those who donated blood that will hopefully help fill a critical need,” said Michele Halligan-Foley, Director of Career Technology Education at the R.W. Creteau Technology Center at Spaulding.
