STUCO contributes to BACA Toy Drive
VAHS StuCo members held a toy drive benefitting the Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) organization. BACA exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. They are a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. They work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children.
Texoma Regional Blood Center
Nurse Tillett is excited to announce that a scholarship program has been added to the Red Cord program this year. All three of our programs are to encourage high schools and students to be apart of our life saving efforts in our communities. VAHS will hold a blood drive on Monday, December 7.
The High School Heroes Program was created as an incentive for high schools to schedule at least one blood drive during a school year. The schools are an essential part of our efforts to keep our hospitals supplied with life saving resources. After hosting your first blood drive the school will receive a $250 Wal-Mart gift card to help with school activities and supplies.
The Red Cord Community Service Program offers students an excellent opportunity to learn firsthand how they can contribute to their community by making a difference in the lives of people around them. This program acknowledges students for being a lifesaving blood donor with a Certificate of Recognition of Completion of 2 (two) hours of Community Service and rewards them with an honorary Red Cord to wear during their graduation ceremonies if permitted.
The Donor Advocacy Scholarship is our newest program and goes along with the Red Cord Program that your school is probably already participating in. If your school does not participate in the Red Cord program your graduating senior class is still eligible for the scholarship. This program is designed to bring awareness to our younger generation on how important it is for them to become dedicated blood donors to ensure a safe blood supply for future generations to come and to encourage others to become blood donors as well.
