Six BCHS students named finalists in HOSA competition

On Dec. 19, 10 Ben Carson High School students participated in a Regional HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) competition. The competition was hosted by Michigan HOSA. 

BCHS performed very well, with six Medical Assisting Top Finalists: seniors Lanya Cooper, Michael Jones, Destiny Jackson-Hussey; and juniors Danielle Brown, Shantoria Rice and Aniya Pride-Pugh. 

“I was exhilarated when I found out I was one of the finalists, my mind was blown,” BCHS senior Michael Jones said.

BCHS has a strong tradition of being successful at HOSA competitions. A big reason for their success is the mentorship of Day Trade teacher Prentice Walker and special instructor Meng Yang.

“I been with HOSA as a student in 1992-1994,” said Yang. “I was HOSA state president in 1993-1994. I joined as an adviser in the fall of 1998.”

BCHS placed well even though most of the students were first-year members.

“It’s nice and interesting for me especially since this is my first time participating in that kind of event,” BCHS senior Lanya Cooper said.
