Springville High students attended and competed at the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) State Conference at the Davis Convention Center in Layton on Thursday and Friday, March 19 and 20. Three students out of the seven who attended placed in their respective competitions:
Tyler Wright and Elissa Coral (a team) took first place in CPR/First Aid. They took a written test to qualify for the second round which was a practical in which they were given a life-saving scenario and were judged on how well they performed. They are now qualified to compete at the National HOSA Conference which will be held in Anaheim, California, June 24-27.
Seanne Hiatt took 4th Place in Epidemiology. This was a written test in which students are tested on their knowledge of how diseases are spread.
There were 1,500 students attending the conference from almost every high school in the state as well as all the Applied Technology Centers. Placing in the top ten is a real achievement -- taking first place is outstanding!
Congratulations to these three remarkable students and good luck to Tyler and Elissa when they compete at nationals.
