Whites Creek High School’s Valedictorian, Joanna Y., won 1st place in the “Extemporaneous Health Poster” competition at the Tennessee State HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) Conference which was held at Opryland Resort and Convention Center, March 19-21, 2015.
This competition is designed to encourage Health Science students to improve their ability to analyze and interpret current health and HOSA-related issues and express and communicate their interpretation through the development of an artistic poster. Students are given a health topic, when they arrive to the competition, which they interpret and develop into posters onsite.
Joanna entered the state competition as 1st place winner from the Middle Tennessee Lower Region. As first place winner in the state, Joanna is eligible to represent Tennessee at the National HOSA Leadership Conference this June in Anaheim, California.
