Bioscience & Dental Assisting Student Compete at Nationals

July 14, 2014

Four of our Bioscience and Dental Assisting students recently had the opportunity to travel to Orlando, Florida to compete at the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) national competition.

The students included:

Alexis Mussetter
Alexis attends DACC's Bioscience program and comes to us from Delaware Hayes. She competed in Biomedical Debate.

Justin O'Bryan
Justin attends DACC's Bioscience program and comes to us from Westerville South. He also competed in Biomedical Debate.

Melinda Bailey
Melinda just graduated from DACC's Bioscience program and came to us from Big Walnut. She competed in Biomedical Debate.

---All three students won third place at the state competition in order to qualify to compete nationally.

Selena Flournoy
Selena just graduated from DACC's Dental Assisting program and came to us from Delaware Hayes. She competed in Dental Terminology. She won second place at the state competition in order to qualify to compete nationally.

Bioscience and Dental Assisting Instructors, Stephanie Rogers and Kamal Vilkhu, travelled to Florida with the students after spending the school year acting as coaches, mentors, and advisors. According to Kamal, the students did not place, but the trip was a great educational experience for everyone.

HOSA is one of the Career & Technical Student Organizations that DACC students participate in. The purpose of the HOSA organization is to develop leadership and technical HOSA skill competencies through a program of motivation, awareness and recognition, which is an integral part of the Health Science Education instructional program.
