Congratulations to La Vega High School students Daisy Gonzalez and Solae Loadholt for being Nationally Recognized at the Health Occupation Student Association (HOSA) International Leadership Conference held at the end of June in Dallas. HOSA is a program to teach students leadership and goal-setting skills in order to compete at local, area, state, and national levels. It is similar to UIL competition in that it has events like medical spelling, medical math, skills events, and many others.
Solae went to be a voting delegate to vote for rule changes, state and national officers, and other things HOSA is a part of. She was nationally recognized for being a voting delegate. She participated in three days of leadership skills.
Daisy went to present the HOSA Happenings newsletter that won at the state level. The newsletter has to be graded by specific guidelines and receive 80 points to be nationally recognized. She presented the newsletter to the judges and informed them about our newsletter and the events that were mentioned in the newsletter.
Sponsors for HOSA at La Vega High School are Robyn Ammons and Vicki Allred.
