Many blood drives were canceled, including the last three at Kutztown University. Now with guidance from Centers for Disease Control and Pennsylvania Department of Health, KU will host a Miller-Keystone Blood Drive, noon to 7 p.m., Monday, June 22, in the Student Recreation Center. Please make an appointment using the website so that we can manage social distancing. This is a public blood drive so please encourage your friends, family and neighbors to sign up. Face masks are required; all other cleaning precautions will be taken. The blood supply is low, so help is needed. Thank you.

He started 168 consecutive games and was a team captain. Folmar earned his degree in health and physical education from ODU in 1999. Read more.
