Claremore and Sequoyah High Schools Win Blood Drive Championship

After a yearlong statewide competition, Claremore and Sequoyah High Schools have emerged victorious in the 2018-19 Oklahoma High School Blood Drive Championship. For Class 5A Claremore High School held 3 blood drives and had 317 blood donations, effecting up to 951 local lives. For Class 4A Sequoyah High School held 2 blood drives and had 262 blood donations, effecting up to 786 local lives. The winners were recognized at the Oklahoma Blood Institute High School Workshop hosted on Thursday at Northeastern State University Broken Arrow.

The competition ended with nearly 800 blood drives from Oklahoma high schools, with nearly half of the donors being first-time blood donors.

“The High School Championship is a great opportunity to show school spirit, but it’s an even better way to show community spirit by saving thousands of Oklahomans,” said Jan Laub, Executive Director Tulsa. “The patients who will receive life-saving blood are the real winners.”

The High School Blood Drive Championship highlighted how greatly we rely on our education groups, when fewer people typically give.  Each blood donation can save as many as three lives.
