Oaks students earn honors

The closing of Ohio schools in March also shut down statewide student events, including the State Leadership Conference for Ohio HOSA-Future Health Professionals.

As with other educational activities, though, HOSA officials found a way to move online, and the organization’s first virtual State Leadership Conference was held in April.

Student competitions to test the students’ skill and knowledge in a variety of healthcare categories were held through online testing and videotaped presentations.

Mackenzie Kay of Greenfield, a Laurel Oaks student in the Health Technology program, finished second in the state in the Medical Spelling competition. She qualified for state competition by placing first in the region in that category.

Shondra McGuigan of Wilmington placed 10th in the Nursing Assisting event.
