Three River Valley students earned Presidential Volunteer Service Gold in Kansas City, Missouri this past week. They were given awards at a Presidential Breakfast sponsored by Lowe’s, then students were recognized on the national stage at the Opening Ceremony. “Our school has always encouraged getting out in the community and volunteering. I am very proud of these individuals who had to log and verify over 250 hours in a year to earn this award. We are the only school in Arizona who was honored with these awards,” said Mike Jackson, SkillsUSA adviser. Mr. Jackson was also recognized on the national stage for the Lifetime achievement award. “Only two teachers in the nation were honored for the award this year, and thanks to Lowe’s and WAVE-JTED, funding was provided for me to attend and accept this award.” he said.

KHS HOSA 2014

The Kingman High School Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) recently attended their state leadership conference and competitions to test the skills they are learning while in high school.  Students can choose between 58 different competitions at the state level.  If they place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in an event, then they can represent the state of Arizona at a national conference and competition.  This year’s national conference is in Orlando, Florida, the end of June.

Representing Arizona from Kingman High will be:  Brett Olson – silver medalist in Home Health Aid competition, Brittany Burgess – bronze medalist in Clinical Specialty – Preoperative CAN, Samantha Jacques and Meagan-Ann Baptista – Public Health – Opening Pandora’s box on mental illness, and Trudy Massie and Brett Olson – on current events in the medical field.

Placing 4th in Parliamentarian Procedure competition were Jonathan Marquez, Spencer Taylor, Skyler Burgess, David Caddick and Daniel Lavertue.

Kingman High had 17 members complete career research criteria for bronze membership; their scrapbook – a record of events the chapter participated in this year – was awarded “gold” for being an outstanding HOSA chapter, and the entire chapter received the honor of “gold medal chapter” for the medical events, medical-related field trips, leadership activities and community service projects they participate in throughout the school year.

The advisor for Kingman High HOSA is Carol Gunnerson.
