Tusculum Wins Blood Drive
Brooke Haymaker, vice president of the Tusculum College Student Government Association, accepts the Blood Drive Bowl trophy Saturday during halftime of the Tusculum College - Carson-Newman football game. Tusculum won the seventh annual Blood Drive Bowl that benefits Medic Regional Blood Center by collecting 190 pints of blood last week, topping Carson-Newman's 139 pints. The friendly competition between the colleges is held each year during the week prior to the football game between the two schools. This is the second year in a row that Tusculum has won the event, whose main purpose is to collect much needed blood for use by hospitals in the region. Collections were held not only at the Tusculum campus in Greeneville, but also at the Knoxville and Morristown sites and at the K-mart in Greeneville.
