WEATHERFORD — Over 400 students from 40 Oklahoma schools will participate in the 11th annual First Tech Challenge Robotics statewide championship this Saturday at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.
The second annual "You're Somebody's Blood Type" blood drive was held last week outside the Canadian County Courthouse Annex. The Oklahoma Blood Institute brought over two donation buses for the six-hour event held in honor of El Reno's Sara Feistel, who has been diagnosed with placenta accreta and may need blood transfusions following the birth of her second baby. There were 38 total donors for the event which yielded 43 pints of blood and plasma. Clockwise from top: A donor's blood starts fl owing into the collection bag.
