Fulton County Area Vocational Technical Allied Health students hosted a blood drive through the American Red Cross at McConnellsburg High School on December 5, 2008. Julie Leese and Destiny Stouffer organized the event, while Tasha Strait and Ashley Mellott assisted throughout the day. Mrs. Brandi Mellott, Allied Health instructor, helped coordinate the activities. The FCAVTS serves students from the Central Fulton, Forbes Road and Southern Fulton School Districts.

Thirty participants gave blood, including students and teachers, 14 of which were first-time donors. Special thanks to McConnellsburg High School for allowing use of the gymnasium, Lincoln Way Pizza for donating food for the event and everyone who donated the gift of life.
