FCCTC students compete at state HOSA

Ten students from Franklin County Schools traveled to Montgomery this past week to compete in the HOSA State Leadership Competition with the Career Technical Center.

The competition included 1,600 students from across the state. The Franklin County students in attendance represented Belgreen High School, Tharptown High School and Vina High School.

“These types of competitions really help them learn leadership skills while developing friendships with students from other schools with similar interests,” said HOSA instructor Andrea Sornberger.

The HOSA State Leadership Competition is an annual state-wide competition for students interested in health professions.

Elizabeth Seal received the Barbara James Service Award, which required at least 70 volunteer hours.

Sarah Grace Kimbrough and Haylie Wilkins raised money for the HOSA National Service Project, and Kimbrough accepted the award for the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation Service Award.

Franklin County Career Technical Center also received the HOSA 100 award at the awards ceremony.

The competition took place Thursday and Friday, with students competing in pharmacy science and prepared speaking. Four students also competed in the HOSA Bowl, which is similar to scholars bowl but focused on health and health professions.
