Due to the success of last year's blood drives, Prospect High School has received $1,750 from LifeSource to distribute to high school seniors who donate at one of this year's two blood drives. The money will be split into five $350 scholarships to be awarded following the March 9 blood drive. Seniors who successfully donate blood at either the Nov. 3 or March 9 blood drive will be asked to fill out raffle tickets. Following the March blood drive, three raffle tickets will be drawn and the winners will be awarded the scholarships. Checks will then be sent to the respective college/university of the three winners upon verification of enrollment.
