    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.
