MHS Student Earns First Place in Health Care Conference
MHS HOSA Club News Release
Molokai High School student Mallory Go placed first in the Epidemiology event in State Leadership Conference as a member of the MHS HOSA Future Health Care Professionals club. This top-three finish gives her an opportunity to attend the HOSA International Leadership Conference this summer. In addition, Aaliah Cariaga presented her Prepared Speaking recording and finished in the Hawaii top 10 with seventh place.
These results prove yet again that Molokai students can successfully compete at the state and international levels. This year was particularly difficult given the virtual event status. Hawaii HOSA event organizers are hopeful that a successful national vaccine program coupled with continued protective individual behaviors will end this pandemic. We are looking forward to the return of the exciting in-person competitive events.
It has been our belief that participation in this club develops leadership skills and behaviors that will lead to future opportunities. Club members Irish Oamil, Meredith Go and Kirakai Yamasaki-Gray have attended weekly meetings, participated in fundraising activities, and developed community service projects.
If you are interested in health care or the excitement of academic competition this may be the club for you. Rosie Davis of Maui County AHEC has financially supported this club for several years. Partnering with Molokai High School health teacher, John Van Ornum EdD, this club has had a successful run. We look forward to a fantastic 2021-2022 school year!
