Blood Drive Blood Drive

This week at Walker High School, HOSA sponsored a Lifesouth community blood drive.Originally, the blood drive was to be held in the IVC lab, but the amount of students who preregistered was so overwhelming, that the event had to be moved to the Golden Viking room. The event was a huge success bringing in 102 donors total. Everyone who donated saved at least 3 adult lives or the lives of up to 30 babies. If you missed out on this opportunity be sure to look for the Lifesouth bus or other blood drives or make an appointment at Red Cross. Also a huge thanks to everyone who participated, especially Mrs. Lyle who coordinated the successful event. GIVE BLOOD SAVE LIVES!!!

Appling Encourages Driving Safely Appling Encourages Driving Safely

March 20, Senior Trooper Jonathan Appling spoke to the WHS student body on safe driving and the importance of avoiding distracted driving. Jonathan Appling, a 2002 Walker High School graduate, is an Alabama State Trooper who works with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency to deliver powerful messages about the devastation resulting from distracted driving.  Distracted driving can include anything from drinking and driving, to texting, to changing the radio. Appling stated that teen drivers are especially at a high risk for having a vehicle accident while driving. The students were encouraged to make an intentional effort to practice safe driving every time they get behind the wheel. This message was delivered at an opportune time, in the midst of spring break and prom season, when many teens are tempted to drink and drive.  The message Appling delivered is sure to influence the students and make them think twice before driving distracted.

Students who choose to participate in dual enrollment, and who meet the academic requirements, can take Bevill classes and simultaneously earn high school and college credit.  This potentially allows for  less overall cost of college, and the option to complete a college degree earlier. The classes offered for dual enrollment have recently been expanded.  Anyone interested in more information should contact the WHS counselors or the Dual Enrollment Office at BSCC.
