The West Liberty-Salem National Honor Society hosted a very successful blood drive last week.
The drive involved the student body, staff, and community members. NHS students promoted sign ups, conducted registrations, aided donors with food and drinks, escorted students to and from class, and assisted the nursing staff throughout the day.

The West Liberty-Salem Red Cross Club supported the blood drive by donating drinks for all blood donors.
Sixty-five individuals went through the registration and screening process and 56 units (pints) were donated. The donation goal for the day was 50 pints. From the 56 pints that were donated, 29 were first-time donors.
In other NHS news, members recently spent four days assisting the West Liberty-Salem elementary with kindergarten screening. They also were presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from Green Hills for 54 hours of service by NHS members. National Honor Society members invite you to a Powder Puff game on May 24th to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis research.
