In just their first year of competition and as members, six students from the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center have qualified for the National Health Occupation Students of America competition.

The students earned their spots at nationals after competing at the two-day state level competition in Columbus and capturing first, second and third place spots in various categories.

Jordan Woolley, a senior from Austintown, is one of the students advancing to the national competition.

“I’m really excited about it. We’ve practiced a lot of the same tests and procedures in our classroom so performing those every day really helped to prepare us for competition,” he said.

Students advancing to the national competition are:

Hannah Chapella of Springfield, first place in Pharmacology

Maria Torres of Campbell, Toni Mansfield of Jackson Milton and Ashley Cunningham of Boardman, first place in Biomedical Debate

Jessica Magliocca of Springfield, second place in Medical Spelling

Jordan Woolley of Austintown, third place in Biotechnology

The HOSA organization at MCCTC is made up of students from the Biotechnology, Health Tech Prep and Medical Occupations programs.
