The Black River High School Student Council and Black River Ruriteens are sponsoring an American Red Cross Blood Drive May 19th at the High School Gym from 8:30 am – 7:00 pm. There is always a desperate need for blood donations. Almost everyone in their life will know someone who needs a blood transfusion. There is no substitute and still only one source for blood transfusion – volunteer blood donors.
Not only will you be saving lives by donating at this drive, you will help Black River students earn scholarship money. In order to make this drive even more successful, we are running a Pint-Sized Hero drive in addition to our regular high school drive. Students who recruit someone to donate will be recognized as a Pint-Sized Hero with a fun appreciation gift from the Red Cross – RC Earbuds!
To sign up for an appointment slot, you can fill out an appointment request form (see link below), contact Lisa Bateson at the High School by phone 419-736-3303 or email email@example.com. You can also sign up online by visiting www.redcross.org. You can support your

So far this year Black River students and community members have donated 103 pints of blood in two drives. We believe we can break the 200 pint mark. This is our last drive of the year, help us make it a record breaking drive!
The Black River High School Freshman Engineering Team attended the Goodyear STEM Career Day this past Saturday at the University of Akron and participated in the engineering competition. They had to build a Rube Goldberg machine that would fill a 33" toy blimp as the final step; and, after over 120 student hours of work, their entry won first place. The team of (from left to right) Alison Daly, Mary Ellen Lafferty, Brittney Hahn, Michael Aikman, Katie Skala, Justin Zacharyasz, William Warner, Jacob Flack, and Ian Schie (team member Ben Artrip is not pictured) got to display their machine in front of over 2000 students and more than 200 schools, and demonstrated it in an exclusive session with Rich Kramer, the CEO of Goodyear. The team won a $4000 grant for the school, they will get to shadow Goodyear engineers for a day and have
engineers talk to students at BRHS, and they get to put their machine on display at Goodyear headquarters.
