students are active in the community
HOSA students from Prairie High School have been active in the community since the start of school. HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) is a national student organization endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Technology Education Division of ACTE. HOSA's two-fold mission is to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. HOSA's goal is to encourage all health occupations instructors and students to join and be actively involved in the HSTE-HOSA Partnership.
HOSA provides a unique program of leadership development, motivation, and recognition exclusively for secondary, postsecondary, adult, and collegiate students enrolled in HSTE programs. HOSA is 100% health care.
The Prairie high school students in HOSA have requirements to attend the state conference (held in April this year). 20 hours of volunteer service as well as 20 hours of time working on their events they will compete in at the conference.
They have volunteered at the blood drive, putting up flyers for the hospital, food bank and Idaho County Shootout, Idaho County Recycling, serving at weddings, helping at a benefit and yard work for the elderly.
We extend our thanks to everyone who has given us opportunities on completing our volunteer hours. If anyone has a volunteer opportunity please contact Zara Hasselstrom or Sheri Daly.
Thanks to everyone who bought Papa Murphy’s Pizzas from us this past month. All proceeds will help with the costs associated with the state conference. Our group sold and delivered almost 200 pizzas. Thank you to Papa Murphy’s for making all for the pizzas. We really appreciate everything the community has been doing to help send us to state.
Please contact Sheri Daly if you would like more information on HOSA.
