For the first time post-COVID, the Red Cross has returned to Stockbridge for the annual blood drive. A student gets their blood drawn. To ensure safety, Red Cross members only draw one pint of blood.

After falling in love with archery at a young age, seventh grader Klayre Smith is already dominating the sport. At only 12 years old, Smith is ranked first in the nation with over 15 national championship titles.
Smith has competed in archery for nine years after gaining a love for the sport while hunting with her father. She hopes to eventually become a professional at the sport.
“I’d love to keep doing archery when I get older,” Smith said. “It would be really cool if I could make a living out of it.”
In addition to her impressive competitive achievements, Smith’s dedication to archery extends beyond the tournament grounds. She has spent countless hours refining her technique, tirelessly practicing her aim and perfecting her form.

From recycling, to candy grams, to blood drives, NHS members have organized several school events from start to finish. They are assisting blood donors in providing refreshments and a calming atmosphere. (Olyvia Hoard)

Smith’s favorite part of her archery career has been traveling the United States for tournaments.
“I really like getting to travel around,” Smith said. “I’ve gotten to go to so many different places that I probably wouldn’t have gotten to see if I wasn’t going to tournaments.”
Smith credits her success to always keeping a positive mindset.
“I’ve always been told to never give up and believe in my goals,” Smith said. “Believing that has helped me to get where I am now.”
With every arrow she releases, Klayre Smith continues redefining the limits of her potential, inspiring others to pursue their dreams with unwavering dedication and determination.
