BOONVILLE — Starmount High School is preparing the future medical leaders of America through its HOSA program. The club stands for Health Occupation Student of America.
This past March, Starmount HOSA competed in the 40th annual State Leadership Competition at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro. They competed in a variety of competitive HOSA contests. While at the competition, many of the students were able to attend seminars pertaining to different career interests.
Adrian Wood, historian of Starmount HOSA, said his favorite part of the club and its program would be the “leadership” characteristics he has learned while participating. Leadership is a key concept of the HOSA program.
HOSA works to better prepare students for the future workforce by teaching students the values of leadership and responsibility. Lauren Stone, Adrian Wood, Savannah Putman and Kaytlen Saner all placed within the top 10 in their events.
Savannah Putman is a member of the Starmount High School Journalism Club.
