Albany High tops blood-donation record

ALBANY, N.Y. (Jan. 13, 2017) -- Albany High School students and staff on Jan. 12 rolled up their sleeves to donate a record amount of life-saving blood to the local American Red Cross.

 

And senior Peggy Abdul-Korah, the driving force behind this year’s blood drives, will earn a $2,500 scholarship from the Red Cross. (Abdul-Korah, left, is pictured with librarian and faculty adviser Alicia Abdul.)

 

The Jan. 12 blood drive was the second of three blood drives Albany High will host this school year. The 121 pints of blood collected exceeded the school's goal by 11 and topped the previous record of 117 donated in a single drive.

 

The next blood drive will be held May 4. Given the momentum established with the first two blood drives of 2016-17, the school likely will surpass previous records for total pints collected in a school year.

 

This will be the sixth time a student blood-drive coordinator from Albany High receives a Red Cross scholarship.

.

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,600 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
