Annual Blood Drive Hosted by SCTC Health Science

In honor of Career and Technical Education Month in February, the health science department at Simpson County Technical Center (SCTC) joined hands with Mississippi Blood Services to host a spring blood drive on Feb. 6. The event was a huge success, with over 20 pints of blood being collected, which could potentially save many lives.

The students enrolled in the health science program at SCTC gained valuable skills through their involvement in this event. They had the opportunity to learn about event planning, teamwork, communication, and community engagement. Additionally, they developed an understanding of the significance of blood donations in healthcare, which helped to foster empathy and a sense of social responsibility.

Brenda White, the health science instructor, played a crucial role in organizing this event, and SCTC is grateful for her hard work in making it a successful and impactful initiative.
