SHS Hosts Blood Drive

Wednesday April 2nd was Sparta High School's annual spring blood drive. The blood drive was hosted by the Red Cross and it was a major success. The goal was to have 54 students donate, and we met that goal and went beyond that number. The final number of donations was 61.

When students enter sophomore year, they have the choice to sign up to donate blood, and some of them have their first experience with it.
