Elkhorn Crossing School HOSA

2012 Fall Semester Success

In 2012 our HOSA members kicked off a great first year as the first students to be apart of Elkhorn Crossing Schools first year as an active HOSA Chapter! Our HOSA Chapter successfully planned/participated in multiple monthly community serivce projects in the Georgetown community since September and participated in the National HOSA Service Project for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Our members put their knowledge to the test and provided health screenings to 8 schools in Scott County! All year our members have been working hard to get ready for the 2013 Kentucky HOSA Spring Leadership Conference as we have more than doubled our participants since last year! We are very excited about our opportunities in 2013.

Numbers to think about...

Exciting things have been happening for Elkhorn Crossing HOSA and we have numbers to prove it!

Our membership consists of 90 members that are participating in our first year as an active local HOSA chapter! Our membership is limited to the 138 students that are in our Health Science program meaning we have over 70% of the students in our program that are HOSA members! Out of our 90 active chapter members we are taking 44 to the 2013 KY HOSA Spring Leadership Conference, more than doubling our number of participants last year! Of course we cant forget about our 5 alumni and the 3 alumni that are traveling with us to the state conference. Community Service projects have also been a huge success! Our "Cents for Cystic Fibrosis" Fundraiser raised over 500 dollars in coins for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. During Thanksgiving our canned food drive raised 1,324 cans from Elkhorn Crossing School. We got involved with a local Angel Tree Program and donated 72 presents to a Georgetown family of 3 during the holidays. To help "ring" in holiday cheer 40 students participated in ringing the bell for the Salvation Army and 57 of our freshman HOSA members made holiday cards for 70 residents at a local nursing home. We put our skills to the test and donated our time to local schools providing free health screenings. More than 50 of our HOSA members have participated in Health Screenings at 8 Scott County Schools! Thats over 4,000 students that recieved a health screening from our members. In our Health Science Program we have over 70 year long student projects that involve community integration. We are so proud of our members and the hard work they are doing to serve our schools and our community!
