QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - An employee at a community college in Quincy has been named a winner of an American Red Cross program.

Eric Foster is a coordinator of student life at John Wood Community College. The Quincy Herald-Whig reports (https://bit.ly/2ouP536 ) he was recognized for planning a schoolwide blood drive and encouraging student participation.

The drive on Jan. 23 raised 106 percent of its goal, collecting 33 pints of blood.

Foster is a graduate of the school and was a former Student Government Association president. He says he’s always been interested in helping students get involved on campus.

He was given a $500 gift card at a ceremony this week for winning We Challenge U, which is a program for college students.
