Ramon Hendrix recently received his 21 gallon license plate frame from Nurse Carlena. He was thrilled to be seated next to a former student and first time donor, Kristina Florez at the time. Mr. Hendrix was the principal of Stockdale High School for 13 years, just recently becoming the new Superintendent of the Greenfield Union School District. Kristina is a junior at Stockdale High, so it was a great reunion for them both. Kristina says she was encouraged to donate not only to save lives, but to be part of the annual Give it Up High School Blood Drive Challenge. The high school challenge was always supported by Mr. Hendrix during his tenure at Stockdale.
Mr. Hendrix’s own blood donation career was shaped when he worked at Mercy Hospital in the pharmacy and saw how many patients were in need of transfusions. Both of his parents needed transfusions during their lives, so he says he just wants to help other people out by being a donor. Thank you Mr. Hendrix for all those lives you have impacted with your 21 lifesaving gallons!
