Western Maricopa Education
Center Board Meeting
State of Arizona
Elizabeth Carnesi, your HOSA-Future Health Professionals President-Elect, attended a West-Mec
(Western Maricopa Education Center) board meeting along with National High School President
of SkillsUSA, Katherine Leung, and International High School President of DECA, Alec Romero.
The three shared their stories of how Career Technical Student Organizations molded them into the
students, leaders, and people they are today.
West-Mec is an organization that provides funding for Career and Technical Student Organizations
across the western Maricopa County of Arizona. The West-Mec Board truly believes in what CTSO’s
have to offer, and was ecstatic to have three National Representatives from the same region.
Without the support of West-Mec, these officers would never have achieved the positions they now
hold. All three National Officers were able to speak on the impact of CTSOs in their lives, and in their
communities. All three had been members of their respective organizations for over three years and
reflected on the growth and passion that they had seen members exhibit in their years of involvement.
They all touched upon the passion they feel for their CTSO. What became apparent was that when
it comes to CTSOs it does not matter where you come from, only how strong your passion is for you
field.

Elizabeth is excited to see how the members of HOSA innovate their professional selves, inspire
others to follow their dreams in the health careers, and to ignite a passion for HOSA wherever they go.
