BHS students gaining real-world experience through school blood drive

Burnsville High School’s DECA club is planning a blood drive at the school on Nov. 3 during the school day for BHS students and staff.

DECA is a club that prepares students wanting to go into the finance, marketing, hospitality and management fields. BHS is one of many high schools and colleges across the globe that offers DECA to its students.

“Working on the blood drive has taught us how to act and work in the business field,” BHS senior and DECA officer Jake Chudecke said. “In the long run, through our work with local businesses, we are becoming real-world ready.”
