The Carolina Agency brings Donate Life trophy to Carolina

The Carolina Agency in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications brought the Donate Life trophy to Carolina for the first time in four years. The trophy is given to the school that registers the most organ, eye and tissue donors during its annual drive.

Stephen Bandstra, Michael Bandstra, Judith Webster and Jawondolyn Harris, fall 2012 The Carolina Agency students, worked alongside the USC Trew Friends chapter and the USC chapter of the American Marketing Association to organize and staff the Donate Life Duel, which took place during the Clemson-Carolina Blood Drive in November. Nicolette Ross of the USC Trew Friends chapter and Steven Gant of the USC chapter of the American Marketing Association were instrumental in the drive.

The Donate Life Duel is part of a partnership between Donate Life South Carolina, LifePoint and the Heather Trew Foundation. It was created to increase awareness about organ, tissue and eye donation at colleges and universities.

"This is the first time in four years of holding the Donate Life Duel that the Gamecocks have won," said Mark Johnson, Media Relations Coordinator for LifePoint. "The Gamecocks won thanks to a lot of hard work and collaboration between Professor Jeffrey Ranta's The Carolina Agency, the newly formed USC Trew Friends Chapter and USC Chapter of the American Marketing Association."
