Central A&M High School Hosts Memorial Blood Drive

Central A&M High School in Moweaqua will hold a blood drive on February 13th from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The past two years of the blood drive have taken on a deeper meaning to the community and school district. In July of 2022, Keegan Virden and Conner Rowcliff passed away in a car accident. Now the community shows support in keeping those boys' names alive by holding blood drives, toy donations, basketball tournaments, and even a color run during Assumption Fest.

Joni Virden, Keegan's mother, has spent the past years recovering from the loss of her son by leading efforts like blood donations and toy drives. Virden says the tragedy provides an opportunity for her to aid in ways she did not consider before and now contributes to the Red Cross Blood Drive, providing potentially life-saving materials to someone in need.


The participation in events and the constant effort to help others in need has helped in the grieving process says Virden.


Registration for the blood drive is recommended but not required and the details can be found on the Red Cross Blood Donor app.

Central A&M High School is located at 229 East Pine Street in Moweaqua.

Joni Virden appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
