Kennett High School Attends the NH/VT HOSA State Competition


On Thursday, March 16th, MWV HOSA students traveled to Hanover, NH for the 37th Annual NH/VT Spring Leadership Conference at Dartmouth College. The event brings HOSA chapters representing schools from VT and NH together to attend workshops, experience leadership and professionalism in the field of healthcare, and to compete in their chosen events. Eight students attended the two day conference and were outstanding representatives of the MWV Career and Technical Center. Please join us in congratulating all of our students who studied and prepared for their competitive events and presented themselves professionally; Sam Ducker, Aleecia Dodd, Mykala Merrill, Emily Fournier, Lily Lash, Gabby Shackford, Erin Curran and Rebekah Eldridge.


We are excited to announce that three of our competitors were recognized for their events. First, the team of Rebekah Eldridge and Erin Curran won 1st place overall for Community Awareness, a service project designed to raise community awareness of a health related issue of local, state or national interest. Their efforts to promote awareness of the Let's Go 5210 program and childhood obesity prevention with the Winter Carnival event earned them this recognition. Second, Sam Ducker won 2nd place for Nursing Assisting which comprised of a first round written exam and second round clinical test in skills related to the role of the LNA. With close to 300 competitors in attendance this is an outstanding success for our students, HOSA and the Health Science program I was incredibly proud of our team!
