The National Honor Society (NHS) is sponsoring their annual blood drive on behalf of the American Red Cross at Calvert High School on Feb 13. 

An interview with NHS sponsor, Mr. David Redden, revealed the significance of the blood drive and what one should do if interested in donating. 

According to Mr. Redden, the NHS has sponsored the blood drive for about twenty years to give members of Calvert High School and NHS alike, the opportunity for community involvement, as well as a chance to highlight giving back.  

Additionally, Mr. Redden stated if one is interested in donating blood, they should ensure they meet the American Red Cross requirements (which can be found on their official website), especially if the potential donor is female. If underweight, females will be prohibited from donating.  

Moreover, to participate, students must submit a completed parental-permission form. On the day of the drive, donating students will be called down during their elective periods and further directed by NHS members.  

Be sure to see Mr. Redden in room 204 with any questions and appreciation to all of the Cavaliers who donate.
