Health Science Students to Attend HOSA Convention

On April 16-18, Paoli High School medical students will being going to the HOSA convention in Indianapolis, IN to participate in competitions, learn about HOSA and different health occupations and meet new people.

During the convention, students will be competing in competitions such as being a nursing assistant and other career skills. If they receive first, second or third place, they will go to nationals in Orlando, Florida in the summer.

“The reason I am going to HOSA is to learn more and meet new people. It is a great opportunity, and it looks good on college applications or a résumé for the future. I hope everyone will get involved in a class at the Lost River Co-op. I love my health science class, and I will be taking medical terminology next year at the Co-op. It has really opened my eyes to a lot of things,” said sophomore Libby Padgett.
