    Allied Health Science Students to Compete on the National Stage
    Seniors: Joseph Kobiloinsky (Columbia) and Alyssa Elswick (North Ridgeville)

    April 23, 2018 -- Lorain County JVS Allied Health Sciences students recently traveled to the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus to participate in the HOSA - Future Health Professionals state competition.  Seven students earned the right to advance to the National competition being held June 27th through July 1st in Dallas, Texas.

    Joseph Kobiloinsky, senior from Columbia, shared that he isn’t nervous about competing on the national level. “I feel really prepared, as I did when we competed at the state competition. It takes a lot of studying, taking notes and lots of reading, but I know we will be ready.”

    Seeing how large of a career and technical student organization HOSA is, was a bit shocking to Kobiloinsky. “I was really surprised to see how many students compete in HOSA. It’s cool to be around and compete against students who are just like me, and are working towards a career in the healthcare profession,” shared Kobiloinsky.

    The students and the competitions they participated in are listed below by their associate school.

    Lorain County JVS Program Receives National Recognition
    JVS Project Lead the Way seniors with Instructor Mr. Brian Iselin

    April 19, 2018 -- Lorain County JVS was recently recognized as a Project Lead The Way Distinguished School for providing broad access to transformative learning opportunities for students through the PLTW Engineering program.

    Brian Iselin, Lorain County JVS PLTW Engineering Instructor, shared that the JVS is one of just 133 high schools across the U.S. and one of 7 high schools in the state of Ohio to receive this prestigious honor.

    “This is an important distinction for our program,” said Iselin. “It shows that we are among the premier PLTW Programs in the nation. My students and I are very proud to have received this award because it recognizes the success that we have had with the PLTW Engineering Program.”

    That success comes in the form of 97% of the seniors over the last six years starting college for engineering in 2 and 4-year colleges all over the country.

    The JVS PLTW students are learning from a Master Instructor for Engineering Design and Development; to which there are only 25 in the whole country. Being at this premier level means that Iselin gets input on the curriculum on a national level.
