CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)- The Blood Assurance Foundation has announced the recipients of the 2013 Crystal Green Memorial Scholarship. Twelve high school seniors were each presented with a $1,500 scholarship.  In order to apply, students must attend a school that hosts a blood drive with Blood Assurance.  The winning students created a marketing plan for a blood drive, some of which are later implemented by the blood bank.

The scholarship funds are made available through an annual golf tournament held in October. The program was established in 1999 in memory of Crystal Green, a graduate of Dade County High School.  Crystal was a student at Georgia Southern University before suffering a setback with aplastic anemia, a blood disorder. After hundreds of hours of platelet transfusions and a bone marrow transplant, Crystal passed away in 1998, shortly after turning 21.
