Southern Tech’s Student Senators hosted a blood drive in the Health West building on April 13, 2017. With summer being a peak season necessitating blood, students and staff were happy to help. Many students and staff members from across the campus donated 64 units of whole blood and apheresis.
Among the donors was Brooklyn Rawls, Web Design student from Dickson who donated apheresis as a first time donor even though it was her birthday. When asked why she decided to give blood she simply said, “A friend in my class asked me to so I did.”
