The Applied Technology Center (ATC) HOSA Chapter represents Northwestern, Rock Hill and South Pointe High Schools in Rock Hill, SC. The ATC HOSA group has 74 active members and growing. This summer President Miranda Hovis and Vice President Donovan Perryman challenged ATC HOSA members by taking part in the Lemons for Leukemia challenge. Videos of students taking the challenge were posted to Twitter and Facebook and Youtube. HOSA members are currently raising funds for the State Leadership Conference in 2016 by selling Country Meats (meat sticks) and also selling Sam’s Express Car Wash fund-raising cards. Students can’t wait for March to get here.
White Knoll High School HOSA Chapter delivered 9-11 remembrance/recognition pins to Lexington County Fire, Lexington County EMS, Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, and Lexington City Police on September 9, 2015.
Students and advisors hand delivered the pins to each office with a thank you note and an invitation to join us during a flag raising ceremony at school. A representative of each division of Emergency Services attended our ceremony along with approximately 75 students and staff. Among those attendees, Major J. J. Jones from Lexington County Sheriff’s Department. He was a part of the delegation from White Knoll Middle who delivered the firetruck to the New York City Fire Station after losing their truck and several members in the 9-11 attacks. Major Jones was very moved to see the generosity of White Knoll continue to serve and recognize emergencyresponders.
As part of education and remembrance, the school broadcasted historical information about the events of 9-11 and the activities WKHS HOSA planned. We also had a HOSA meeting in which 1st Sgt. David Pelley reminded the members about the incredible community response from White Knoll and how it made national headlines in 2001 for the extraordinary efforts made by such a small community.
The first meeting between the Aiken County Career and Technology Career Center HOSA and our newest middle school affiliate from Aiken County School District-Langley Bath Clearwater Middle School HOSA. The senior HOSA students hosted the middle school group for a field trip on Friday March 27, 2015. There were 23 middle school HOSA students along with their advisors, Dana Chipley and Elaine Smoak that spent over 2 hours with the ACCTC HOSA group. The middle school students were engaged in many hands on activities that included: first aid, vital signs, PPE’s, competitive events demonstration and preparation in CERT and Health Career Displays. This is the first of many joint events between the two groups.
Congratulations Langley Bath Clearwater Middle School for joining our HOSA Family!
