Southview High School bests blood center’s donation record


Lorain’s Southview High School has shattered the high school donation record at regional charity: LifeShare Community Blood Services


The record to beat was 369 campus collections in a year—Southview bested that by 73 donations for a total of 442 during the 2006-07 academic year.


“We are especially proud and appreciative of the School’s efforts since the student members of Southview’s Model U.N. Program plan, manage and orchestrate every part of their blood drives under the direction of faculty advisor Doug White. 


“The young people who run the blood drives take complete ownership and conduct themselves as very mature professionals,” said Lisa Mayles, LifeShare spokesperson.  “Their results in crushing the high school donation record at our 59-year-old charity tell the whole story.”


“Generations X and Y are the future stewards of American blood donation.  And while LifeShare already relies on the kindness of Northeast Ohio students for nearly 20 percent of our blood supply, the need for youth support will be increasing as our Nation’s most loyal blood donors age.  The students at Southview are the type of caring and committed people who will lead the way for their generation,” said Mayles.  “We can’t thank or applaud them enough.”


According to LifeShare, it is the only source of blood to every hospital and cancer center in Lorain County; the Blood Center is the only provider of blood to St. John West Shore Hospital and is a major source across Northeast Ohio including the Cleveland Clinic and the University Hospitals systems.


According to LifeShare, blood collected remains in the community where it was donated.
