The Fourth Annual Student Council Blood Drive

The Lincoln Lutheran Student Council's fourth annual blood drive was held on Wednesday, April 21st.  Student Council partners with the American Red Cross each spring to allow the Lincoln Lutheran community to give blood.  This year over 50 units were donated to the Red Cross.  Each unit has the potential to save three lives, so this April, Lincoln Lutheran saved 150 lives.

Overall the drive was a success, despite frigid conditions, long lines, and donating in the midst of a long week.  This year only one person fainted and only a few have reported bruises!  The Red Cross workers were very happy at the stamina of the donators.  Stu-Co President Lauren Hohbein said, "The drive this year was very successful, and I am thankful for all of the people who came out to donate blood!"  Next year, Stu-Co hopes to once again host a blood drive with the Red Cross, but in the meantime they encourage people to give blood at other Red Cross drives or at the Community Blood Cross.  They crucially need blood right now!

Student Council Creates Big Plans for the Upcoming Weeks

    The student council's agenda ranges from problems in the school, to service, and to overall representation of the school and council. To better cover these topics the officers each picked a topic they enjoy and are passionate about and chose a committee to support them. The four groups are service, school issues, publicity, and stu-co team building. After the first meeting in the groups many ideas and projects were planned.
