ADAMS, Minn. - Members of Southland High School's National Honor Society are hosting a series of blood drives. Their first was on Wednesday.

"However many pints of blood we get, and however many donors we get, we get a certain amount of money and so if we meet our mark we get $3,000 worth of scholarships that we split so it's a good chunk of change for college," explains NHS president Lee Wilson.

The students' goal is to collect 153 pints of blood. The scholarship money comes from the American Red Cross's Leaders Save Lives Scholarship Program.

Wilson expects the students to put on two more blood drives this coming school year.
