Students Compete at HOSA State Leadership Conference
Catholic Central High School students recently attended the HOSA State Leadership Conference in Traverse City, Michigan. HOSA - Future Health Professionals is a club for students interested in pursuing careers in the healthcare industry. The event, which took place from April 26-29, brought together over 2,500 students from across the state to compete in more than 50 different events. Nine Catholic Central students participated in the competition and showcased their skills and knowledge in various events. 

Peter Sanin ‘25 participated in the National Geographic Learning Academic Testing Center Microbiology test, placing second overall to qualify him for the international conference. Competitors recognized, identified, defined, interpreted, and applied knowledge in a 50-item multiple choice test with a tie-breaker question. The written test measured knowledge and understanding at the recall, application, and analysis levels.  

Patrick Phillips ‘25 placed eighth overall in Job Seeking Skills, which required competitors to prepare a personal statement, resume, and digital profile and then participate in a mock job interview with judges. Phillips received state recognition for his performance.

Christian Bakkal ‘25 placed seventh overall in Medical Spelling, which involved two rounds, including a written multiple-choice test and a "spelldown" where competitors spell medical terms in front of judges. Bakkal also received state recognition for his performance.

Additional events students participated in include Nutrition, Dental Terminology, and Forensic Science.

The HOSA State Leadership Conference was an excellent opportunity for the Catholic Central students to showcase their skills and knowledge and gain experience in the healthcare industry. Catholic Central is proud of their accomplishments and wishes them continued success in their future endeavors.
