On Saturday, April 7, the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) State Leadership Conference brought together 4,000 HOSA students from around the state. Travis Ranch School had four students go up on stage as state finalists and receive medals at the Grand Awards Ceremony.
This recognition represents countless hours of studying, researching, and rehearsing healthcare topics. The school’s attendees were Camille Khong, Anita Tun, Samantha Lee, Tyler Cordova, Julia Herndandez, Kambria Bowen, and Ruby Bittner. Alex Panahi and Esha Jhawar also took tests remotely in March to participate. Students were accompanied to the conference by Travis Ranch teachers and club advisors, Mary Chapluk and Gina Beelner.

“I’m so proud of how much work ALL of them put forth to prepare for their competitions and giving up a day of their spring break for over 14 hours,” shared Mary Chapluk.
HOSA is an international student organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. HOSA’s two-fold mission is to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people.
