Lower Richland Students Win Big in Virtual State Health Sciences Competition

 

Lower Richland High School students won big at the Virtual South Carolina Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Competition, which tested students online on their knowledge of medical terminology, home health sciences, pharmacy science, epidemiology and other areas.

 

Students in Lower Richland’s HOSA chapter won a total of 21 awards and honors, including a first-place award, two second-place awards and two bronze awards. Eight students placed in the “Top 5” category and six students placed in the state’s Healthcare Issues Exam’s “Top 15%.” In addition to having the most students registered for the virtual competition, Lower Richland took home second-place honors in the HOSA Bowl. Lower Richland student Chloe-Ann Cook also received a bronze medal (Barbara H. James Service Award) for community service hours. The chapter raised money for the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (bronze medal). The online competition was held April 19-24. Students were notified of their awards on May 1.
