Middle School Chapters!

These photos spotlight the inaugural meeting of the York Middle School (SC) HOSA Chapter. At the initial

interest meeting, twelve 7th and 8th grade students eagerly participated in an interactive leadership

simulation, a technology-based HOSA scavenger hunt, and a very special visit from two awesome HOSA

alumni, a retired local HOSA chapter advisor and SC HOSA competitive events team member, Lisa Carrigan

and Allison Roof, 8th grade counselor. Following the initial meeting, interest in joining HOSA has grown. One

student was so excited he suggested weekly chapter meetings rather than the planned monthly gatherings!

The school nurse will serve as chapter advisor with assistance from Shannon Carrigan, Assistant Principal,

and the alumni in attendance at the organizational meeting. Member recruitment strategies included fliers,

word of mouth, school website announcement, and “healthy’ peer pressure! Their program of work will

include preparing for the Health Education competitive event by reaching out to the local elementary school

and to practice delivering the lesson plan, collaborating with the English department to integrate the Medical

Reading event, and scheduling fundraisers to promote HOSA community involvement.

HOSA looks forward to following

the progress of the HOSA

chapter at York Middle School

and the growth of the HOSA

Middle School Division

throughout the nation and

internationally during the

2016-2017 membership year.
