Carlos Ramirez was elected Secondary Vice President of HOSA for the Southern region of Arizona. We have a state officer. This position required a speech and question and answer period. He ran successfully against the current HOSA HIstorian from Sunnyside. Carlos was wonderful.

Nine students attended the State Leadership Conference. Most had to be in the top 20 in the state after an online test in February.

Biotechnology Story
In Biotechnology, 95 students took the online test. Michael Dedrick was 5th, and Tricia Hindley was 9th. On Thursday both participated in the skills competitions. The two skills were microscopy and culturing bacteria. Today the final results were announced.

In the Arizona State HOSA Biotechnology competition, Michael placed second, and earned a trip to Nationals (Orlando), and Tricia placed 5th.

In the following competitions, students worked almost exclusively on their own, since these subjects were not explicitly covered in the biotech curriculum:

Jeffery/Brian Bishop- Medical Math
Cynthia Lona- Human Growth and Development
Hector Mendoza- Prepared Persuasive Speech
Carlos Ramirez- Epidemiology
Patrick Swindell, Gilberto Valenzuela, and Christian Vasquez- Creative Problem Solving Team

Students earned 4 medals:
Gold: Carlos Ramirez

They all qualify for Nationals.
