The Washington High School Health Occupation Student Association and members of the Allied Health Science and Nursing Fundamentals program sponsored a school-wide blood drive through the American Red Cross on Dec. 5. Students registered volunteers for the event and walk-ins were welcome. The students and staff surpassed their goal and collected 82 units of blood.
