Thanks to all involved with another successful campus blood drive hosted on Tuesday, December 10th. The Coastal Bend Blood Center relies heavily upon the donations of high students, and our Centurions are eager to give life saving blood. Each unit donated saves three lives. Donors received a special t-shirt and opportunities for prizes at the end of the Red Cord Heroes Program. High school seniors can become eligible for a red cord to be worn at graduation.
