Cross County seniors applied and were accepted to participate in “A Day in the Life of Nurses” at UAMS northeast in Jonesboro. They listened to several professionals, including an ER nurse, nurse practitioner, and nurse anesthetist, speak about a day in their life and took a tour of St. Bernard’s. They also learned how to draw blood, give injections, take blood pressure and even got to wear a pregnant belly! It was a great day full of experiencing and exploring future career paths!
Cross County High School had another successful blood drive. Giving blood is a life-saving activity that many of our students understand the need for. This round, Cross County students gave a total of 26 donations! We are well on our way to securing scholarships for our students. We only need a minimum of 15 more units donated at the next drive to receive scholarships. Please help us thank our students for donating.
Mr. Jerry’s bus is running late this morning. Thank you for being patient with us and supporting Cross County Schools.
