CRANFORD — This June, an exceptional group of graduating high school seniors from New York and New Jersey will be recognized for their participation as life-saving blood donors. Students who presented to donate blood at least two times this year at their high school blood drives will wear a red honor cord at graduation to indicate this notable achievement.
“We are proud to join in the celebration of this year’s graduating high school seniors,” says New York Blood Center’s executive director of recruitment, Andrea Cefarelli. “Students made the choice to participate in their school blood drives and their choices helped us maintain an adequate blood supply for the community. We hope this will be the start of a life-long commitment to saving lives.”
Cranford High School graduate, Megan Schetelich wears the red cords around her neck from NJ Blood Services, a division of the NJ York Center, which indicate that she is proud to be a blood donor. Pictured with Megan are her grandparents, Patricia and Gene Kelly.
