HOSA students to compete at state


A total of 88 Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) members from Starr’s Mill High and Whitewater High schools will compete at the HOSA State Leadership Conference at the end of February in Atlanta.

Students have spent the past seven months honing their skills, and are now ready to demonstrate their abilities at the conference that is expected to attract over 3,400 members, advisors and guests from throughout Georgia. The competitive events program is more than a competition, it is a means of recognizing those students who are willing to pursue excellence by preparing for competition, and having the determination to attend a conference and demonstrate the competencies gained through the healthcare science program.

HOSA is a student-run organization that is part of the Healthcare Science Pathway in the Fayette County Public School System. The organization provides a unique program of leadership development, motivation, and recognition exclusively for secondary, postsecondary, adult, and collegiate students enrolled in health science education and biomedical science programs, or have interests in pursuing careers in health professions.
