Congratulations to the WHS HOSA -- future health professionals -- chapter!

At the state competition March 21 in Vancouver, all of WHS’s participants made it to the second round of competition, and five are headed to nationals, which will be in June in Anaheim, California.

Plus, the WHS HOSA chapter was recognized as Outstanding HOSA chapter for Washington state for its service projects and career awareness activities.

“They’ve accomplished a lot this year,” said WHS science teacher Jennifer Cullison, who advises the group.

The mission of HOSA is to enhance the delivery of compassionate, quality health care by providing opportunities for knowledge, skill and leadership development of all health science education students.

  • Tanner Froeber for placing second in Medical Math.
  • Mabel Warndahl for placing third in Dental Science.
  • Kayla Moody, WHS HOSA chapter president, who will present at nationals on behalf of the Woodland chapter.

WHS’s other HOSA student competitors are Kianalia Senn in Vet Science, Anna Karus in Medical Terminology and Forensic Science, Kate Cochran in Medical Reading and Forensic Science, and Mariah Fried in Medical Terminology and Dental Terminology.

Well done, everyone!
