WSD HOSA Students Advance to International Competition

Students in the Holt, Liberty and Timberland high school HOSA (Future Healthcare Professionals) chapters competed in the Missouri State Convention in Rolla, Missouri on March 27 and 28. Twenty five students brought home an award and qualified to move on to the International Leadership Conference which will be held in Orlando, Florida on June 20-24. Liberty junior Daryn Adler was named Missouri HOSA President and Liberty junior Alexis Guffey was named Missouri HOSA Historian for the 2017-18 school year. In addition, Holt seniors Ben Meyer and Triston Welch and Timberland sophomore Alexis Hohenshell received the Barbara James Service Award for completing over 100 hours of community service.
