Laramie High School Held Blood Drive

LARAMIE, Wyo. (February 11, 2022) – The students at Laramie High School (LHS) participated in an effective blood drive yesterday, Feb. 10. Kim Dale, a school counselor and the student council advisor, said the students at LHS always do a great job with the semiannual blood drive.

“What I love is that we can just make a few announcements, and I get kids coming in to the counseling office to sign up for a time,” Dale said. “I just love that my student council kids are awesome about signing up to help. I give them an overview, and they take over the table to help the volunteer donors, keep them calm, make sure they’re hydrated and following the process. So, on both sides of it, there’s a great a community here. I’m proud of LHS students.”

The blood drive started a few years ago, when Dale and the Student Body President at the time visited a state convention and heard about blood shortages. The Student Body President wanted to help, and the LHS blood drive was created.

The non-profit company Vitalant helps LHS with the blood drives. The new LHS building is uniquely suited to help with the blood drive, as the balcony serves as a perfect location to set up.

“We have a really good space for them to bring their supplies in and have a little bit of privacy for our donors,” Dale said.

Vitalant offers two donor volunteer slots every 15 minutes, and hopes to fill up at least 20 slots. Dale says the LHS students always easily hit the goal.

“Our kids are crushing it, they always sign up,” Dale said. “They’re great kids.”
