East Hickman High School again partnered with the Red Cross foundation to host a blood drive. Students seventeen and up could donate at any time throughout the school day while students age sixteen needed a parent’s permission; the donors lined up and were laid down on cots. Mrs. Kelly, the health science teacher at EHHS, led the blood drive while her HOSA students partnered with the Red Cross to facilitate it. HOSA members observed and learned as professionals drew pints of blood from people in the student body. HOSA members also located donors and escorted them safely back to class after donating blood. HOSA President Alex Garcia and member Fran Batson were in charge of admitting students, teachers, and parent donors.

The Eagles played the Fairview Yellow Jackets for the first time in years. Even though the Eagles lost, they played a talented Fairview team who went to state playoffs last year. Because of the reputation and proximity of Fairview, it brought students out to the game to form a student section where they chanted and supported the Eagles throughout the game. For homecoming on September 13th, the Eagles will take on the Stewart county Rebels. Make plans to come out and support your Eagles!
