Two Kentucky High Schools Square Off in the ‘Big Red Battle’ Blood Drive
An impassioned high school rivalry in Owensboro, Kentucky continues. For the third year in a row, the Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center is capitalizing on that decades-long duel between Daviess County High School and Owensboro High School. Once again, the National Honor Society clubs at both schools are rallying students, teachers, faculty, staff, football players, coaches and fans to donate blood on behalf of their favorite team.
