Brookstone’s Servant Leadership department and the Red Cross are partnered together to hold a blood drive in the Brookstone cafeteria on Friday. The event was held to honor Rudi Cumiskey Pierson, Class of 2005, and to show our support of our middle school PE teacher and varsity tennis coach, Mary Lynne Cumiskey.

Rudi has been dealing with multiple health issues following a liver transplant in 2014 and has been the recipient of donor blood on many occasions. This drive is a way for our Brookstone family to show love and support to the Cumiskeys and to help others, too.

It was such an incredible outpouring of love and support as more than 70 donors came to give in Rudi’s honor! We love our Brookstone family!!

Middle Schoolers, Addison Hastings, Tiffany Sung, former Head of School and grandfather to Rudi, Charlie Cumiskey, MS Principal Chris Moore, and 8th graders Joanna Lunsford and Jordan Brown all come to lend their support to Rudi!
