High school blood drive benefits Marsh

October was an exciting month for HOSA members at Daniel Boone and David Crockett high schools. Both schools participated in the inaugural Musket Bowl blood drive, which this year consisted of three events: the David Crockett Community Festival, the Musket Bowl and the Daniel Boone blood drive.
With the combined donations from these three events, as many as 402 local lives were saved. The school that accumulated the most donations received a special plaque. The winner of the 2014 Musket Bowl Blood Drive was Daniel Boone, which edged out David Crockett by 14 donations.
The blood-drive competition between the students at both Daniel Boone High School and David Crockett High School helped to motivate Musket Bowl attendees to participate at the blood drive. “These blood drives provided an experience for both high schools to collaborate toward meeting the needs of our shared community,” said Cheri Wolfe, DCHS HOSA Adviser and Health Science Program Instructor.
 Marsh Regional donated Musket Bowl T-shirts to both HOSA clubs. A portion of the proceeds from the T-shirt sales went to benefit Sgt. Luke Story, a firefighter with the Jonesborough Fire Department who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
 Marsh Regional Blood Center would like to thank the HOSA students from Daniel Boone and David Crockett as well as the many other students, faculty and community members who joined together in the fight to save lives.
