HOSA future health professionals logThe NCHOSA State Leadership Conference was held virtually this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. NCHOSA’s Board of Directors felt it was necessary for our future essential employees of the healthcare industry to push through and enjoy the conference. Competitions occurred the week of April 27th and chapter voting delegates were able to vote for the NCHOSA Executive Council for 2020-2021.

Westover High School’s HOSA hosted a watch party with a virtual induction ceremony for the new HOSA  Board. Applicants applied using Google Forms and interviewed with a committee comprised of current board members and HOSA advisors. Westover HOSA is proud of all of the students who competed and are proud to announce the following placements and recognitions:

Personal Reflection (from Joy Graham, Health Science Educator)

Between being a first-year teacher and serving as an advisor to Westover High School’s HOSA chapter, and a pandemic that has transformed education, it has been a wild first year for me. I have particularly enjoyed being an advisor to our HOSA chapter alongside Mrs. Kacheckia Dewitt. Westover’s HOSA chapter has provided an opportunity to get to know the students on a deeper level and give them opportunities to lead while using the skills that they have learned in the classroom. Westover’s HOSA chapter performed well and was highlighted numerous times at the State Leadership Conference that happened virtually on May 13, 2020.  If you are interested in seeing a complete list of the winners or watching the virtual awards ceremony please visit: http://nchosa.org/conferences/state-leadership-conference/.    Congratulations to all of the students who competed and placed at the State Leadership Conference.
