Student blood donors receive scholarships


News Release

TERRE HAUTE — Roche Diagnostics and Indiana Blood Center are recognizing 81 high school seniors in Indiana who participate in community service.

Recipients were nominated by their school administrators for showing a commitment to helping maintain a supply of blood for hospitals by participating in two blood drives throughout the 2012-2013 academic school year. Participation in blood drives includes being a donor or student coordinator.

Recipients have earned a $618 scholarship and red cords to be worn during graduation ceremonies. Each student plans to study science, math, technology or a health-related field at an Indiana college or vocational school.

In this academic year, Indiana Blood Center’s high school blood drives collected 24,628 units from high school students.

Funding for the scholarship program is paid, in part, by Roche Diagnostics, a research-focused health care provider.
