Foley High School freshman, Katelin Ryan, competed in March for the Alabama State HOSA competition. She beat over 100 other students to take the state title.
We talked to Katelin about her extraordinary win.
What did you win?
– I won the health issues exam at the HOSA State Competition.
What is HOSA?
– It stands for Health Occupation Students of America. It’s a club we have at school and we meet once a week to learn about whats going on with Health Care.
What made you want to join?
– I’ve always wanted to be a doctor, and I heard that you can get scholarships through HOSA. I just fell in love with the club.
How many people did you have to go against?
– Over 100 and I also was the only freshman.
Where would you like to go to college?
Is there anyone that you would like to thank?
– I would like to thank Mrs. Luker. She is the HOSA sponsor, and I wouldn’t know what HOSA was without her.
