IN A FLASH: Vital Donations, Vital Scholarships

Kent State University Golden Flashes may not actually "bleed Blue and Gold," but their blood donations through Vitalant are as good as gold. That's because their donated blood not only saves lives, but each donation counts toward Vitalant scholarships for Kent State students.
