KHS HOSA State Leadership Conference

Posted by admin | Posted in CTSO News | Posted on 22-04-2014-05-2008



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.

Lake Havasu SkillsUSA Club sending 10 students to National Competition!

Posted by admin | Posted in CTSO News | Posted on 19-04-2014-05-2008


On April15-16, SkillsUSA Lake Havasu brought its largest delegation of students to the Arizona SkillsUSA championships.  Between Automotive Technology, Construction Technology, Drafting, Digital Media Technology, Journalism, Fundamentals Drafting, Interactive Gaming, and Web Design, Lake Havasu High School brought 77 Career and Technical Education students!

SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce.  Below you will see the impressive lists of contests that Lake Havasu medaled in.  We did not break the school medal record of 26, coming up short with 20; however, Kristal Norman, Steven Paluch, and Brad Robbins will take 10 CTE students to Kansas City, Missouri to compete against the best SkillsUSA members in the nation.  Primarily, the students’ dedication to long Saturday practices in their chosen vocation is a testament as to why they did so well.

Medals are golden, but they do not tell the whole story.  Every SkillsUSA student, whether a medalist or not, deserves recognition. Congratulations to all!

Jaquelynn O’Campo to run for FCCLA State Officer

Posted by admin | Posted in CTSO News | Posted on 18-03-2014-05-2008


Jaquelynn O'Campo

Jaquelynn O’Campo is a sophomore at Mohave High School who is actively involved in the FCCLA Early Childhood Chapter.  Although this is only Jaquelynn’s first year in FCCLA, her enthusiasm and ambition allowed her to quickly distinguish herself as a leader.  Her welcoming smile, kindness, and words of encouragement have played an integral role in increasing our chapter membership this year.  In addition, our members are more actively participating in events which many attribute to Jaquelynn’s contagious passion for the FCCLA mission.  The spark that she brings to each meeting has helped ignite a fire of determination within our chapter.  In fact, we have doubled the number of teams who will be competing at Spring Conference in April.

Immediately after the State Officers visited our campus, Jaquelynn was inspired to run for state officer.  Jaquelynn is motivated, fun-loving, likeable, and trustworthy which we believe are all qualities of a successful leader. Not to mention, she is not one to back down from a challenge, either academic or personal. She always finishes what she starts and never lets adversity get her down.  Our chapter whole-heartedly supports Jaquelynn’s desire to run for an FCCLA state officer position!
