The spirit of giving is alive and well at Walt Whitman High School!   The Fall Blood Drive held on Friday was a huge success due to the efforts of our captains and senior class officers.  124 pints were collected. This is truly amazing.  Each pint touches 3 lives- close to 400 people will be impacted by these donations here on Long Island.  So whether you were a captain, donated blood, offered to give or were turned away due to weight or low blood iron, you were part of this amazing day.   Also, many thanks to Mrs. Papianou who helped supervise this busy event.    If you did not donate and would like to give, there will be another Blood Drive in the Spring.

Senior Officers-who organized the event: Jack Anest, Niki Brigante, Kristy Campana, Kayla Campana, Timothy Jobson, Katie Latko, Brenda Mendez, Daniela Pasquerello and Liliana Pelliccia.

Captains: Heather Aadal, Joshua Berger, Leevon Black, Andrew (AJ)Brookman, Noelle Bryggman, Kristen Coletti, Angelina D'Amico, Matthew Haddock, Danielle Harris, Kathleen Hoppe, Julia Iovino, Meaghan Liegey, Kyla Magrane, James Mattutat, Delaney Mena, Hapi Morancie, Sean O'Donnell, Shailee Patel, Jenna Scheiner, Jamie Silverman, Tania Sood, Colin Stengl, Julio Taku, Alec Wurtz, Natalie Zakrzewski, and Michael Zimmerman
