Eleven FHS Students Advance to State HOSA Competition

HOSA is a student-led organization dedicated to promoting career opportunities in the healthcare industry and enhancing the delivery of quality health care to all people. Through the program, Frenship students can compete in a variety of events related to the healthcare field such as nutrition, behavioral health, and pharmacology.

“The students in our Health Science Program are amazing. Our HOSA kids are dedicated and work so very hard,” said Melissa Rose, FHS Certified Nurse Aid Program Director and Instructor. “They study on their own time to do well on these tests, and many come before or after school or during out periods to get assistance with skills - all while keeping up with other activities, sports, and schoolwork.”

Many of the students had to take an online test back in December against hundreds of students. Based on the testing, six Frenship students qualified for the state competition including:

  • Lindsey Larremore – Behavioral Health
  • Nini Hoang – Nutrition
  • Natalie Dang – Human Growth and Development
  • Ava Monico – Medical Math
  • Alli Holder – Pharmacology 
  • Marvin Shaikh – Pharmacology

Other students had to continue with a skills portion of the event during the Area competition in El Paso earlier this month. At the Area competition, Frenship students went head to head with students from Canyon ISD, Lubbock ISD, Lubbock-Cooper ISD, Brownfield ISD, Levelland ISD, and all the high schools in El Paso including Medical Magnet schools. At the end of the competition, another five Frenship students qualified for state including:

  • Madison Jerome - Vet Science
  • Ahmad Altabaa - HOSA Bowl Team: Medical Trivia
  • Zach Madry - HOSA Bowl Team: Medical Trivia
  • Cade Salisbury - HOSA Bowl Team: Medical Trivia
  • Jazmine Mills – HOSA Happenings: Presentation of Year in Review

“We have pretty tough competition with the Medical Magnet schools in El Paso. It’s is super competitive, but our students have done an amazing job again this year,” said Rose. “Mrs. Schaunaman and I are so very proud of all of these students!”
