Scholarship Options

Graduation Honors

To honor those high school students throughout the community who help make WKRBC’s mission possible, we proudly present The High School Hero Program. This initiative will recognize graduating blood donors by presenting them with a solid red honor cord and certificate. The cord is to be worn during the graduation commencement ceremonies designating them High School Heroes for their life-saving gifts to the community.
