According to den Ouden, many donors were not feeling great afterwards. “There is a potential to pass out due to the plasma drop,” she said, adding students can faint or feel sick if they have smaller frames, or due to the warm room and not eating before donating. However, den Ouden said the turnout was great. She wants future donors to know the process doesn’t hurt. “One donation can save up to four lives,” she said.

Security

for college’s native students By Nicole Childs There are many scholarships offered to native students to help

with post-secondary education but few apply for them because the students don’t know they exist.

Sponsors from many different companies and organizations offer scholarships and bursaries to native students.

One such

organization

is

National Aboriginal Achievement

Lorre Jensen of NAAF said, “We believe education is the key to independence and self-sufficiency and we want to encourage all aboriginal people to attend post-seeondary universities and colleges and earn diplomas and degrees that will allow them to assume meaningful and financial rewarding roles in whatever community they choose, whether it is on a reserve or in an urban setting.” NAAF uses a jury of aboriginal educators and professionals from diverse career fields to assess scholarship applications.

Another organization is the Foundation for the Advancement of Aboriginal Youth (FAAY). Companies such as Xerox, Scotia bank. General Electric, TD Bank Financial Group, Davis and Henderson, NetStar, Hudson’s Bay Company, and Bank of Montreal offer scholarships through

With only 13 of the 21 players at the game, and no goalies due to injury and tests, Conestoga had to pull halfback Allan Ma into net.
