Sophomore Casandra Carrasco and seniors Jessica Wolf and Nicole Brigola attended HOSA’s 35th National Leadership Conference and returned with several recognition awards for SWCTA HOSA held this past June in Orlando, Florida.
The awards received were for the national service project, outstanding HOSA chapter, two Barbara James service awards, and national HOSA week. After earning a spot in the top three during the State Leadership Conference in Nevada, all three students were able to compete at the national level. Wolf and Brigola competed in the Community Emergency Response Teams event, and Carrasco competed in Medical Photography.
“Being confident that you did well is great, but it doesn’t always mean you will win,” SWCTA HOSA President Wolf said.
Seniors Bserat Ghebremicael and Yuen Ying Ha also attended the conference as Nevada HOSA state officers. Their responsibilities ranged from managing the Nevada State Meeting to attending several important workshops, meetings, and practices. They also had a two-day training, where they came up with ideas with their team for the Program of Work, a layout of their goals for the year. During her time there, Ha also competed in Job Seeking Skills and placed in the top ten.
