Miss Iowa Visits VHS Student Council Blood Drive

VHS Blood Drive

Miss Iowa 2011 Jessica Pray visits with Valley senior Ben Madson as he donates blood at the VHS Student Council blood drive. The blood drive collected 60 units of blood.

Valley Student Council hosted its annual blood drive April 9, with 60 units of blood being donated from staff, students and family members. That number far exceeded last year’s blood drive total of 38 units collected. In fact, this year, 38 units of blood had been collected after just three hours.

Jessica Pray, Miss Iowa 2011, was present at the blood drive offering snacks and juice in the recovery area along with Valley student volunteers. Her Miss Iowa platform is Saving Lives Through the Gift of Blood Donation, working to raise awareness about the importance of blood donation.
