Congratulations to Mason Neugebauer, senior at PHS, for being the recipient of a scholarship from Lifeserve Blood Center. He was selected because of his dedication to the HOSA blood drives put on each year and his selfless act of donating blood to save lives. At our May 8th blood drive, Mason hit the One Gallon mark for his donations! Abbie Arneson, our local territorial representative for Lifeserve, said, "Mason is pretty incredible. In all honestly, I do not know if I have ever had a student graduate high school with having donated just over a Gallon with 9 pints of blood, which had the ability to help up 27 patients!!! It is amazing when you think about what he has accomplished before leaving high school and even more astonishing when you consider that only 3% of the population donates blood!" Congratulations, Mason! Thank you for setting an example for not only your peers but current donors and potential donors everywhere! 🩸
