Colquitt County High School’s HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) Club and CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) students sponsor two community blood drives each year; one fall semester and one spring semester.  The HOSA club collaborates with the American Red Cross and OneBlood to facilitate the blood drives.  In November, the OneBlood drive was successful in collecting 270 pints of blood with 300 students/school personnel participating. 

HOSA hopes to surpass this amount in the upcoming spring blood drive (March 26th).  This community service project is a huge undertaking for the HOSA Club as it requires a lot of careful planning, along with flexibility and support from the school staff.  However, the HOSA members and advisors willingly make the sacrifice because they believe it’s a worthwhile contribution to the community to help save lives.
