Amy Baker, CTE Coordinator at Frenship High School, has been the blood drive coordinator at FHS for the past 10 years. In that time, she has coordinated 23 blood drives, with those blood drives resulting in 2,071 units of blood. With each unit of blood having the ability to affect three different lives, those 2,000 plus units of blood had the potential to positively affect more than 6,000 local hospital patients.
Stephanie Pointer, Donor Recruitment Supervisor for United Blood Services, said Baker is the true force behind the success at FHS and that Baker’s dedication is truly helping to save lives.
“Amy Baker has been the driving force behind Frenship blood drives for the past 10 years,” Pointer said. “The responsibility of supplying blood to the hospitals would be an insurmountable task without community partners like FISD students, faculty, administrators, and coordinators like Amy.”
FHS hosts two blood drives a year and has been one of the best drives in Lubbock for many years, according to United Blood Services.
Thank you to Amy and her dedication to helping save lives!
