The first blood drive of the year was hosted shortly after students returned from the break after Harvey. Students from all grade levels were able to come and participate. The student council played a very huge role in the process they were in charge of volunteering during the whole process. From signing up students to donate or simply being there for the day of.

“Our last blood drive was held on Wednesday and Thursday, September 20th and 21st, 2017,” Kaylee Valencia said. “This year the majority of our blood drives will be two-day drives since we have such a large volume of donors.”

While many students who wanted to donate were turned away for various reasons, the astonishing amount that were able to help save lives was impressive.

“At this past September drive, we had a total of 102 successful donors including students, faculty, and community members,” Valencia said. “That translates to approximately 375 lives saved!”

On behalf of the student body from Brazoswood it is an amazing thing to see how simply students can change many lives! What an amazing day to be a Buccaneer! Way to go Bucs!!
