Pottstown High School students and staff showed their willingness to give to others to help build a strong community. 

During the annual Winter Blood Donation Drive, students and staff donated 52 units of blood which will be used in local hospitals to help save over 150 lives.

Carol Graves, Donor Resource Representative of the Miller-Keystone Blood Center, said, “This is one of the most successful winter blood drives that the high

school has conducted. High school students are responsible for contributing over 20 percent of the community’s blood supply. As our nation ages, there is an increased demand for blood. These young people have demonstrated that they are willing to take their place in our community as future leaders.”

The drive is organized by the Pottstown High School HOSA (Health and Occupations Students of America) students, under the leadership of Michaela Johnson. 

 She said, “I am very proud of our students and staff for their willingness to give of themselves and make a donation that truly helps save the lives of many people. Our donors include students who have distinguished themselves in the classroom and co-curricular activities. They are now demonstrating their leadership and willingness to help our community. They truly are a reason for us to all say Proud to be from Pottstown.”
