Millville Teachers Honored for Work with American Red Cross Blood Drives

In October, Nappen and Descalzi attended the annual high school conference in Philadelphia and met keynote speaker and Philadelphia legend WR Vince Papale.

Millville teachers Victor Nappen and Stacy Descalzi were honored on November 20 for their continued support and service to the American Red Cross. Since Millville High School has hosted school day blood drives for students, 3,573 pints have been collected, which translates to over 10,000 lives saved.

Each year Millville Senior High School’s wellness team headed by Nappen at the school level and Descalzi at the district level chooses students to be awarded scholarships. Last year $1,500 was distributed to MSHS Seniors.

The Fall drive was huge success. The Spring drive will be held on March 18 and will be open to students during the school day and to the community at 2:30 p.m.

Community drives started in the Spring of 2019 and were a welcome addition. Each community member donation, like student donations, counts toward scholarships for students. Mr. Nappen also plans to start a Red Cross club for students at MSHS next fall to have more student involvement with the blood drives.
