As part of the Career and Technical Education program at Grundy County High School, students hold memberships in Career and technical Student Organizations (CTSO). The CTSO for Health Science Education is HOSA.
In early December, several GCHS students competed in testing to secure a spot to compete in the HOSA regional conference
GCHS is on a traditional schedule – students stay in most classes for an entire school year, while many other school systems are on a block schedule where students change classes at after Christmas. This means GCHS students are competing against other students whom have already completed the course of study for the various events, while GCHS students are only halfway through their course of study. It is all impressive that these students have placed in their events.
The following students will compete on-site at the Lower East Tennessee regional conference on January 14, at Cleveland State Community College:
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT): Kaylin Layman and Destiny Sanders; Emergency Medical Technictian: Taylor Dees and Jacob Darren Partin; Dental Science: Kaitlin sons; HOSA Bowl: Demetria Preston, Tori Northcutt, Caitlyn Rogers, and Jordan Harris; and Health Education: Victoria Camp and Hannah Hiett.
Elston Harris, a senior at GCHS, scored in the top five in the region in epidemiology and will receive a ribbon and/or certificate at the regional conference awards ceremony.
