Students of Conway Area Career Center (Conway High School) recently attended the International Leadership Conference of student organization Hosa: Future Health Professionals in Orlando, Florida.
Students spent the week at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, which was the conference location.
Along with competitive event participation, students attended educational symposiums sponsored by over 100 healthcare entities, including the United States Army, Office of the Surgeon General, Department of Health, and Association for Career and Technical Education.
Students were also excited to meet other future health professionals from all around the United States and abroad, as Hosa is now a global organization.
As members of this organization, students are eligible to compete in one of over 50 competitive events at the conference which highlight a specific health occupation or promote leadership skills for a future health professional.
This year, Conway High School was proud to send 12 students to the conference who showed excellence by winning awards at the Arkansas State Leadership Conference in March- thereby receiving an invitation to compete at the international conference. Each event averages over 75 individuals or teams and is extremely competitive.
Students Katelyn Caldwell and Kyle Mahan placed 3rd in the event Health Career Display and team members Abigail Allen and Caroline Jones placed 9th in event CERT (Community Emergency Response Team).
CHS is also proud to say that 5 other competitors advanced to round two in their event- these accomplishments are a conference record for the school.
