A successful day for HOSA Regionals!

Lydia Schram
On Dec. 2, 39 Clague students participated in HOSA regionals, at Bedford High School.

She was sitting on the plastic bleachers of Bedford High School when she was unexpectedly called down—eighth grader Deborah Song is a member of HOSA as she was decending down the stairs for her event, Life Threatening Situations, award ceremony. “I was ready to cheer for my friends, fellow Clague members, and other competitors,” Song said. “But when I got into the line, the anticipation and adrenaline flooded in, my hands grew clammy. Then they called my name suddenly for 2nd place—I was utterly surprised, unsure of how to react.”

On Dec. 2, 46 Clague students competed in HOSA, an organization that encourages future health professions and professionals, at Bedford High School. Regionals included a variety of events that range from Health Career Exploration to Prepared Speaking.

“I think it was fun,” seventh grader at Clague and participant of Health Career Display with sixth grader Francis Badalamente who were awarded third place, Emma Jung said. “I’d definitely do it again!”

After numerous study sessions at the Duderstadt library and meetings held at Clague, a total of 39 finalists qualified for HOSA states – which will transpire on March 16, at Detroit Country Day School.

“I’m glad to say that even with our change in advisors for both the Huron and Clague branches, our members were able to push onwards and thrive this year at regionals!” HOSA President Srinithya Chiravuri said, “I’m so incredibly proud of all the middle schoolers who tried HOSA this year, and can’t wait to see how well they crush it at States!”
