The State HOSA competition will be held March 28-30 in San Antonio.

In addition, four HHS students recently passed their CCMA exams to become Certified Clinical Medical Assistants. These students are Paris Jackson, Jazzmyn Martin, Samantha Marroquin, and Alejandra Mendonza-Gonzalez.

The CCMA certification will allow these students to be employed in a physician office or in a hospital setting. They can earn an income of $12-18/hr. There is a great need for CCMAs in the healthcare field.

Congratulations to all of these students on their hard work and accomplishments!
