On November 19, 2019, Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech’s Student Council partnered with the students in our Medical Assisting program to hold an American Red Cross Blood Drive. Ethan Mouri, who is a Student Council member and in our Legal and Protective Services program spearheaded this event. The drive was open to all students sixteen and older with parent permission and faculty. A total of 43 patrons were served and 28 units of blood were collected. Students and faculty at Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech were pleased to host in such an impactful event.
