Aiken County Career & Technology Center Spotlight!
HOSA Community Service Project
Every winter during the month of February, Kennedy Middle School in Aiken SC, hosts Mini Courses on each Wednesday for all 6-8th grades. For the last five years, the Aiken County Career and Technology Center Health Science/HOSA students have been invited to participate with the event. Each year the “Insight into Health Care Careers” has been presented. Middle school students are introduced to basic first aid, vital signs, and even infection control. Students are given the opportunity for hands on learning, as well as the various career paths available in healthcare using tools like explorehealthcareers.org, schosa.org and hosa.org. These students are given an insight into the unique opportunities that the health science class and the HOSA organization can give any student interested in a health career. Through INNOVATIVE teaching methods, the ACCTC Health Science/HOSA class hopes to INSPIRE future generations and IGNITE a passion for learning and careers in healthcare.
Great Job, Aiken County Career & Technology Center HOSA Students!
