KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. | Six Lehigh Career & Technical Institute students are headed to the next level of competition after notching top-three finishes last week at the Pennsylvania HOSA State Leadership Conference.

Hundreds of students from HOSA chapters across the state gathered April 3-5 at Radisson Hotel-Valley Forge for the organization’s 40th annual conference. The conference featured 50 competitive events, as well as more than a dozen symposia on topics including memory power, opioid addition, effective fundraising and time management.

  • The team of Emily Donnelly, Elizabeth Kanzler and Jessica Leight earned first place in Creative Problem Solving. All three girls are Southern Lehigh High School students in LCTI’s Emerging Health Professionals program.
  • Sarah Supplee, a Northwestern Lehigh High School student in LCTI’s Emerging Health Professionals program, earned second place in Medical Reading.
  • Payton Divers, a Northwestern Lehigh student in LCTI’s Exercise Science & Rehabilitation Services program, earned second place in Health Career Photography.
  • Abigail Heiter, a Northwestern Lehigh student in LCTI’s Exercise Science program, earned second place in Physical Therapy.

All six students will represent LCTI in their respective events June 19-22 at this year’s HOSA International Leadership Conference, which is being held at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Kudos to everyone who competed at the state conference and congrats to those who are headed to Orlando!
