Blood Drives Begin Again — On behalf of One Blood and the student blood drive committee, Seminole Ridge thanks everyone who supports the school’s annual blood drives.

The parent/community drives continue to grow, as does the number of parents and community members donating toward scholarships. Ten seniors received $14,500 in One Blood scholarships last May. The most important recipients, though, are those in local hospitals needing transfusions, platelets and surgeries.

The 2017-18 on-campus Friday blood drive dates for students are Nov. 10, Jan. 19, April 27 and May 25. Parent and community blood drive dates this year are Thursday, Nov. 16; Wednesday, Jan. 24; and Wednesday, May 2. The times are 3 to 8 p.m. by the gym lobby entrance at the south parking lot.

Golfer, Bowler Advance to States — The SRHS girls golf team placed third in regional play Oct. 24, with golfer Haylie Turnquest earning first place as an individual qualifier for the state finals with a score of 72.

Hawk bowler Nick Healton will advance to state finals as well. With games of 232, 177 and 214, Healton is the top district qualifier.
