The SUNY Canton Criminal Justice club was awarded for saving lives by the pint.
The college’s club, populated by numerous Criminal Justice and Criminal Investigation students, recently received accolades from SUNY and the American Red Cross for coming in fourth for collections.
“It’s quite an achievement to come in fourth among all 64 of the SUNY colleges and universities,” said SUNY Canton Vice President of Student Affairs Daniel Sweeney. “I am extremely proud of your involvement and dedication to the blood drives. Hopefully you have all created a lifelong tradition of donating blood.”
Sweeney presented the club members with a plaque denoting their achievement at a recent club meeting.
The Criminal Justice club has worked with the Syracuse Chapter of the American Red Cross to hold blood Drives for five years. During that time, the SUNY Canton community has donated 510 pints of blood which is approximately 108 percent of the club’s collection goals.
