The Lynbrook High School Key Club with advisor Dr. Benedict Tieniber, recently received the prestigious Heroglobin Award from the New York Blood Center during the 2018 High School Blood Drive Recognition Breakfast at Newsday in Melville, New York.
Lynbrook High School earned the award, which is the highest honor in New York State for high schools, for collecting 234 pints of blood in the Blood Donor Program during the 2017-2018 school year. The Key Club hosted three blood drives from November to April which resulted in the high number of blood donations. The school’s contributions will go on to benefit 702 lives.
“I was extremely proud of this group,” said Dr. Tieniber. “They worked very hard to increase numbers and save lives.”
