No question, the Florida State women’s basketball team has enjoyed a great deal of success in recent years, but that doesn’t take away from the efforts the Seminoles put forth off the court and in the community.
The Florida State women’s basketball team, in conjunction with the FSU Athletics Student Services Office, will be holding a Blood Drive in the Donald L. Tucker Center parking lot, Friday, October 7th, from 2:30 p.m to 6:30 p.m. The blood drive effort was the idea of sophomore Nikki Anthony.
“I just brainstormed and thought of a few things that we could do to help the victims of the hurricane in New Orleans,” Anthony said. “As a college student, I don’t have a lot of money to give, but I knew I wanted to give in some way so I thought giving blood would be a really good idea and so did other people and it just escalated from there.”
“To whom much has been given, much is required,” –words that head coach Sue Semrau and her players choose to live by. Community service has always been a big part of Semrau’s program.
“I just think it speaks really highly for our players that Nikki Anthony would come up with the idea to have a blood drive and then there are people on staff that have just jumped on board in order to make this a reality,” Semrau said. “A lot of people are putting in a lot of effort but blood is something that is of great need and high demand right now so I am just proud to be a part of it.”
