COLLEGE STATION - A&M Consolidated High School held it's annual blood drive Tuesday.
Students, staff, and members of the public lined up to donate blood. In addition to collecting blood donations a pint at a time, the event also allowed students in the Basic Medical Practice class to gain valuable experience.
"Our students in the health science and tech program want to become medical professionals and this is good experience and opportunity for them to participate," said Health Science Technology Teacher Chuck Gipson
"You just don't know when people are going to need it, when you're going to need it yourself again. The whole College Station area is just teeming with healthy people that should be giving blood," said Anna Davidson, a donor from Texas A&M University.
If you're interested in donating, but couldn't make it today, you still have time. They'll be accepting donations again from 8:30 to 2:30 Wednesday at AMCHS.
