Area graduate receives Power of Life scholarship

Boyle County High School graduate Kyndall Honaker, of Junction City, has been awarded a $250 Power of Life Scholarship from Kentucky Blood Center. Kyndall Honaker plans to attend Eastern Kentucky University.

Since 2010, Kentucky Blood Center (KBC) has granted more than 750 scholarships to Kentucky high schools that host blood drives. The school is awarded scholarship dollars based on the number of donations at those blood drives and the high school then selects the scholarship winner(s).

“Many people make their first blood donation at a drive at their school,” said Bill Reed, KBC’s President and CEO. “It’s our hope that we are cultivating life-long blood donors through great experiences like this. We established this scholarship as a way of thanking these dedicated high schools and students for seeing and meeting the need for life-saving blood donations.”
