Blood Drive

Red Cross Blood Drive Thanks Everyone

Friday, April 16th American Red Cross came to Pryor High School to help with the national blood shortage.

PHS was the first school the Red Cross was able to host a drive in since the pandemic. They collected 37 pints (only had to turn away 6) so they were very pleased.

Thank You Pryor, Oklahoma!

On April 26 2021, Charlie’s Chicken held a benefit dinner for senior student Javon Blake to support his battle with leukemia. A grand total of $11,000 was raised from donations and proceeds from the silent auction.  

Mrs. Hendrickson’s leadership class devoted many hours to make this possible. Students made calls and visited different business to request donations for the silent auction, made flyers and signs to advertise the event, and volunteered to work the event.

Thanks to the combined effort of our community and businesses of Pryor, this event was a huge success.
