Many of us hear about HOSA but it’s not a club that gets very much attention. For those who are unaware, HOSA is an acronym for: Health Occupations Students of America. HOSA is a school club used to promote opportunities for students to find careers in the healthcare industry. Since starting up in 1976, HOSA has been introduced and accepted in the U.S., American Samoa, Canada, District of Columbia, Germany, Italy, and Puerto Rico.

Jerome High School had six girls attend the HOSA State Leadership Conference this year. State was held at Wyndham Boise Airport and Hotel on April 5-7.  Faith Johnson, Bethany Kealaiki, Morgan Myers, Vanessa Rocha, Areli Morfin, and Nancy Martinez were Jerome’s six participants. Faith Johnson was the only Tiger to place, landing herself in the top 5 in Community Awareness.

Ms. Paige Vickery is the coach for Jerome HOSA and has been for the past few years. She expressed her excitement and love for the girls saying, “Five out of the six students that attended State Leadership Conference had never been before so it was a great experience for them.” She also said how proud of the team she was and that she is already anticipating a great group of returning girls next year.
