After state victories, Warren Tech students prepare for international leadership conference.

Warren Tech students have qualified to attend the HOSA International Leadership Conference at Disney World in Orlando, Fla.

Four students in the Warren Technical School Health Careers Program are preparing to attend the Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) International Leadership Conference in June, after winning awards at the organization’s state level competition.

HOSA promotes career opportunities in the health care industry and enhances the delivery of quality health care to all people. The following Warren Tech students took home honors at the HOSA State Leadership Conference in March:

  • Maya Cooper (top 10 in Interviewing Skills)
  • Nijin Durden (1st place in Personal Care)
  • Nicole Nelson (2nd place in Personal Care)
  • Cristy McCain (2nd place in Life Support Skills)

As a result of their achievements, the four students have qualified to attend the HOSA International Leadership Conference, June 21-24, 2017, at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

The students are actively raising funds to attend the conference. To learn more about contributing to the $3,200 trip, please visit their fundraising site, or contact the school at (678) 676-6502. The deadline to donate is May 1.

The awards are particularly notable because the students attend Warren Technical School, a DeKalb County School District vocational training school serving special education learners in grades 10-12, ages 16-21. It is the only school of its type in Georgia.
