SAHS HOSA Chapter is Named Utah Outstanding Chapter for second year in a row.

SAHS HOSA Chapter is the Utah Outstanding HOSA Chapter for Second Year in a Row

For the second year in a row the Summit Academy High School HOSA chapter has earned the title, “Outstanding HOSA Chapter,” at the 2019 Utah HOSA Spring Leadership Conference.  HOSA (Future Health Professionals) is a career and technical student organization with over 200,000 students world-wide, created to provide opportunities to investigate career paths and develop leadership skills in the health sciences.  A major component of this effort is the state Spring Leadership Conference at which students can compete in up to three of over fifty knowledge or skills-based health-care related competitions.  SAHS HOSA earned this distinction through demonstration of their program of activities over the course of this school year, placing them ahead of over 50 other Utah chapters of all sizes (even 5A and 6A schools!).  Additionally, SAHS HOSA took first place in their division of the HOSA Games, a competition where chapters earn points through completion of various activities that enhance opportunities to learn about health care careers and service to school and communities—and, we have a huge trophy to prove it!

This year SAHS HOSA took 32 participants to the conference and in addition to the recognition above, in individual and team competitions we had 9 top-ten finishes, listed below!  Of note, this is the second year in a row that we have had the 1st and 3rd place Forensic Science teams in the state and three years in a row that we have had top three finishers in Forensic Science.  Additionally, Michaela Fluck was elected to the Utah HOSA State Leadership team as the Utah HOSA Vice President for the Northern Salt Lake Region.  Those designated in the list below with ** are now also qualified to participate in the
HOSA International Leadership Conference which will take place June at Disney World, Orlando.
