A group of Gooding High School students are going to Nashville, but they need your help for their trip.

There are 11 Health Occupation Students of America students from Gooding who will be competing in the national organization's contest in Nashville the week of June 22-25. They have already held many fundraisers to help pay for the trip, but still need sponsors to cover food costs.

Jack Sherlock provided some background on how they qualified for this trip.

Our success at the State Competition in Boise, ID during April 6-April 8 earned many of our chapter members high-ranking spots against hundreds of Idahoan High School students from all across the state. The competitions that were present at the conference included a wide range of occupational careers in Medicine, Science, and Technology. Nine of the eleven members of the chapter ranked high enough to compete in their field of study at the International level.


Even competing against schools specifically for medicine, science, and technology, we still came out on top, and we plan to do the same thing in Nashville. Also, the two members who did not rank for the International Competition have an opportunity to volunteer as part of the Peace Core, which helps the HOSA competition by volunteering to act as cohorts or assistants among the many competitions that will take place.

The national leadership conference competition for HOSA is an honor you have to earn, so it's quite the accomplishment for the entire Gooding chapter to qualify.

If you or your business would like to lend them a hand, you can call (208) 490-2586 or email them.
