Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) is a professional organization on a student level. HOSA supports the Health Science pathway of classes.The purpose of HOSA is for students to network with other students across the state that are interested in Healthcare. HOSA gives opportunity for students in 54 various competitive events and leadership conferences. Competition in HOSA starts with Area I competition. If a student places in the top 3 of the event, the student advances to State competition. The top 3 competitors in each event from State then advance to National competition.
HOSA also serves the community. Twice a year, HOSA sponsors a blood drive at the school. Anyone and everyone that is 17 and older is encouraged to give blood. We are also starting a recycling event at GHS through HOSA. Plastics are being collected and recycled. HOSA volunteers at events such as the Special Olympics, United Way and the Salvation Army.
HOSA students contribute to needy families at Thanksgiving and send care packages to soldiers during Christmas.
