Seven local students earn Impact Award

Students earn award for work to increase regions blood supply


DAVENPORT – Five students from area high schools have received the ImpactLife Student Impact Award, given annually to students who have shown exemplary support of our region’s blood supply. The Student Impact Award Program recognizes the many ways students can support the blood supply: as donors, advocates, volunteers, and blood drive coordinators. Recipients of the Student Impact Award have completed one of the following activities while in high school: donated blood at least six times, recruited at least six new blood donors, or have hosted a local blood drive.  
 "Working towards the Student Impact Award is a great way for students to prove their leadership skills, earn volunteer hours, and help our community,” said Lindsay Erhardt-Hansen, Manager, Donor Relations.  “Our Student Impact Award recipients have demonstrated commitment and dedication to helping others. These characteristics will benefit our community long into the futureLogo
