SMA High Blood Drives
When SMA High gives blood, they really give from their HEARTS! SMA High consistently receives community recognition for donating the highest number of blood and platelet units compared to any other similar-sized campus. There are five blood drives per year on the campus and cadets over sixteen are eligible to donate along with faculty, staff, and parents. Just shy of 100 people typically donate per drive and approximately 820 units per year is usually donated.
Cadets in their senior year who donate three or more units of blood are eligible to apply for a $500 to $1,000 scholarship from the Community Blood bank, just in time for graduation and college preparation!
