Albany High School Senior Chyann Johnson set up a blood drive for her peers.

The event, in awareness of National Blood Donor Month, featured a visit from the Albany City Schools Superintendent Kaweeda Adams.

The school holds blood drives three times each school year and partnered with the American Red Cross for the blood drive.

According to the Red Cross, about 20 percent of the blood used in the United States is donated by students. A single donation can save as many as three lives.
