EHHS Blood Drive

Blood donation is essential as “there are no substitutes for blood, platelets or plasma—they cannot be manufactured,” according to Cedars East Hickman High School and the Red Cross held a blood drive on Monday, November 21st where all HOSA, Health Occupations Students of America, members were able to watch and learn about all the steps that go into a blood drive.

Students were able to help check people in as well as provide snacks to participants. In total, there were 23 participants collecting over 20 units of blood that could be used to help save lives in the future. Cedars Sinai states that one unit of blood can save up to three lives and that 38,000 units of blood are needed every day in the U.S while only 2% of the population actually donates.

HOSA members have smiling faces coming soon to the health care profession.

Senior Night, the Last Home Game

As cold rain and wind blew, the Eagles ran through the banner to start the game. The Eagles’ Senior Night  was played on October 25th against Zion Christian Academy where the Eagles lost a very hard fought defensive battle. The Eagles blocked a punt in the end zone and completed a two point conversion to tie the game 8-8 at half time. Zion scored what would end up being the game-winning touchdown in the 3rd quarter. Even though the Eagles held them scoreless in the 4th quarter, they were not able to score themselves. The Eagles’ last game is this Friday, November 1st, against Scotts Hill High School in Reagan TN, Henderson County.  

Eagles Match Up with Jackets for the First Time in Years

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!
