Sarasota, FL-Fifty-four high school seniors from Sarasota, Manatee and Desoto counties were recently awarded a total of $24,140 in scholarships from SunCoast Blood Bank (SCBB). SCBB is committed to cultivating the next generation of blood donors through its Generation Give (G2) scholarship program.

To be eligible, a student must participate in three school blood drives their senior year, by promoting the drive, donating blood, or helping the day of the blood drive.
