Last week, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) competed in the Area 1 Spring Leadership Conference and Competition. Every year it is held at a different school; this year it was at Roosevelt High School.
“It was so much fun,” HOSA sponsor Peggi Loveless said. “It was wonderful to be surrounded by so many intelligent people.”
Twenty students competed in the two-day competition. Out of the 20 students, two students placed. Junior Chris Rivera placed fourth place in veterinary assistance and senior Dominic Keovoravong placed fourth in job seeking skills. For everyone, it was a good opportunity to meet others interested in the field.
“It was very exciting to compete,” senior Elizabeth Lowman said.”There were so many kids there.”
Along with all the students competing, 15 volunteers came along to help the competitors.
“It was really fun; we go to play patients or victims for the competitors. We got to see everybody who wants to go into the medical career,” senior Rebekah Evermon said.
