Student achievement: Students medal at HOSA States

Mar. 18, 2019

Hoʻomaikaʻi to all of the students who earned medals and competed at the recent Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Hawai‘i State Leadership Conference held at the Hawai‘i Convention Center in late February.

HOSA is an international association that offers leadership development opportunities to students looking to pursue careers in healthcare. Through HOSA, students also have access to post-high scholarships and community service opportunities. 

Thirty-eight schools participated in this year’s conference, which included over 60 individual and team competitive events. Students competed by either completing a written test, submitting a portfolio, doing a team presentation, or a combination of each. 

KS Hawai‘i took home five medals, including gold going to seniors Hoʻonani McClung, Chianti Motta and Nanea Delostrico for Public Health; gold to senior Sienna DeSa for Medical Assisting; silver to sophomore Osiana Pacheco for Sports Medicine; and bronze medals to junior Landen Kukahiwa for Veterinary Science and senior Maya Rosof for Medical Law and Ethnics. 

All gold medalists move on to HOSA’s International Leadership Conference in Florida from June 19 through 22. To learn more, visit
