CTE students participate, place in allied health competition.

GRAND RAPIDS — Recently, 30 West Shore Educational Service District Career and Technical Education (CTE) Allied Health students qualified to compete at the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) event in Grand Rapids.  There were over 7,500 students who participated in at least one of the 57 health related competitive events.

Students were judged on professionalism, technical skills, and leadership abilities. Twelve students were all-state and four were placed in the top three which qualifies them to participate in the National competition, June 18-23 in Orlando.  

“I’m very proud of all my students,” said Sally Wright, CTE Allied Health instructor and registered nurse. “Placing at HOSA is a huge accomplishment.  Students put in many hours after school to prepare for their event.
