The students competed with 3,300 other students from around the state.

According to Health Occupations teacher Kristen Demers, each student put forth exceptional effort to participate in the conference and represented the Delta-Schoolcraft Intermediate School District Manistique Satellite HOSA.

Of those students, six excelled and made it to the top 20 in the state in their respective competitive fields.

Those students included: Kendra Cournaya, Veterinary Science; China Collison and Cadence Richmond, Home Health Aide.

Competing in CPR/First Aide, the team of Emily Baker and Fiona Wing placed eighth in the state.

The final student to place was Regina Moloney. She took second in the state competing in Home Health Aide and received a silver medal.

With this accomplishment, Moloney now qualifies to compete at the HOSA International Conference in Dallas, Texas in June. She was one of the only two students from the Upper Peninsula to qualify.

Moloney plans to fundraise for travel expenses and attend the conference.
