WCHS HOSA members Haley C. and Hanna S. brought a first place win home to the swamp after their recent competition at the statewide Fall Leadership Conference. Haley and Hanna entered the HOSA membership recruitment display board competition and were first notified that they scored in the Top 10 out of 46 teams. The Top 10 teams included stiff competition from Burke County High School, Camden County High School, Dutchtown High School, Effingham College and Career Academy, Etowah High School, Lamar County Comprehensive High School, Locust Grove High School, Parkview High School, and Worth County High School.
Excitement continued to mount throughout the competition as the Ware contenders were notified of a Top 5 finish among Burke County High School, Dutchtown High School, Etowah High School, and Locust Grove High School. Haley and Hanna were ecstatic to learn of their first place finish, earning them top honors at the conference.
Haley remarked, "[I am] so honored and blessed to have placed first not only for our school, but also for our community! Thank you everyone for your prayers and support as we made our way through the final to get the win! Thank you also to our advisors, Marci Johnson and Angie Simmons, for supporting us through anything and everything; we couldn't have done it without y'all. Go Gators!"
Congratulations, ladies! We are so proud of you! Way to represent THE SWAMP!
