Our Fort Worth, Texas College was recently recognized as one of Carter BloodCare’s “Top Performers of 2009” among local vocational colleges.
The award was presented to Allied Health Department Chair Tonia Lawrence during Carter BloodCare’s last campus visit. The plaque states: “In honor of your generous donations during 2009, we celebrate and honor your commitment to saving lives and thank you for bringing life and hope to others through the Volunteer Blood Donor Program.”
Remington College’s Fort Worth, Texas college campus organized four blood drives on campus in 2009, ably and efficiently coordinated by the Career Services Department. “The participation from our students, faculty, and staff was phenomenal,” said Ms. Lawrence, adding, “The majority of donors were Remington students, but faculty and staff also made a great showing, even using their lunch breaks to donate.”
In commenting on the award, Ms. Lawrence paraphrased a popular quote she often refers to: “The ability to positively affect change starts with each of us as individuals.” She added, “As individuals, and as a team working together, I’m very proud of our Campus’s dedication to helping save the lives of those in need.”
The Campus’s blood donation efforts have continued throughout 2010, with the next blood drive scheduled for September 21.
