What’s Happening in Student Council?

Do you ever wonder what Student Council is up to? Your elected Student Council members wake up early every Thursday morning and have a meeting. These meetings usually involve lots of event planning, such as National Lutheran Schools Week coming up in March. They also organize fundraisers. Other things happening in Student Council are a new addition - Junior Rees Klintworth was added to the council after another member stepped down. Rees has been welcomed as a new member and is looking forward to contributing his ideas.

Angel Tree project to benefit Friendship Home

The Student Council has once again set up their Angel Tree project.  Gifts that are donated will go to the Friendship Home. The Friendship Home is a place in Lincoln that serves women and their children who have been victims of domestic violence. Many of these women and children have to leave everything they own behind, so there is a great opportunity to provide these families with various gifts.

The Fourth Annual Student Council Blood Drive

The Lincoln Lutheran Student Council's fourth annual blood drive was held on Wednesday, April 21st.  Student Council partners with the American Red Cross each spring to allow the Lincoln Lutheran community to give blood.  This year over 50 units were donated to the Red Cross.  Each unit has the potential to save three lives, so this April, Lincoln Lutheran saved 150 lives.

Overall the drive was a success, despite frigid conditions, long lines, and donating in the midst of a long week.  This year only one person fainted and only a few have reported bruises!  The Red Cross workers were very happy at the stamina of the donators.  Stu-Co President Lauren Hohbein said, "The drive this year was very successful, and I am thankful for all of the people who came out to donate blood!"  Next year, Stu-Co hopes to once again host a blood drive with the Red Cross, but in the meantime they encourage people to give blood at other Red Cross drives or at the Community Blood Cross.  They crucially need blood right now!
