Florida HOSA Regional Competition Results
A huge congratulations to Kia Kinney who won FIRST PLACE in the region in the Medical Terminology competition today. She is eligible and qualified for HOSA state competition in April. If you see her please give her a big “Raider high-five!” Representing Rickards high School, this is RHS HOSA club’s first time competing. Our other members, Kenya and Thandi, did very well but, unfortunately, did not place.
HOSA Holiday Drive Delivery
On behalf of the HOSA club, I would like to thank everyone who donated the nonperishable food items, gently used clothes, blankets, coats, and toys to make the HOSA holiday drive a success. The donations were delivered to the Kearney Center to aid families in need. The donation's value was assessed at around $450.00. We met and befriended two gentlemen there, Kenny Williams and Preston Ford, who assisted us and we hope to stay in touch with them. Kenya Jenkins, the HOSA president, represented the club and the school very well. I am proud of her! Please give her a "That-a-girl!" when you see her. Thank you to everyone again. It was greatly appreciated.
