WCS Students Participate in HOSA State Leadership Conference


Students from several WCS high schools are now gearing up for international competition after successfully participating in the HOSA State Leadership Conference March 28-30.

At the state conference, students used their skills and knowledge to participate in several events, including speaking skills, behavioral health, and more. Students are eligible to participate in the International Leadership Conference this summer by achieving the highest score in a category.

“It was amazing to see the interest and desire among students to learn more about the medical field and health professions,” said Brandi Mangrum, counselor at Independence High HOSA. “The leadership experience they gain is invaluable to their growth. I look forward to having more students involved and competing in HOSA now that they have seen the success of their classmates.

HOSA is an organization that aims to promote career opportunities in the healthcare industry and to be a leadership development, motivation and recognition program for high school, post-secondary, adult and college students.

Congratulations to the students who finished in their categories. The students listed below with an asterisk next to their name will gain access to the international conference at the end of June.
