20130726 VMHS-HOSA-NationalsMISSION—The Veterans Memorial High School Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) community awareness team recently represented VMHS and the state of Texas at the HOSA national leadership conference competitions.

The group earned a second place finish at the national event with their Love Shouldn’t Hurt campaign. The team spent much of the 2012-2013 school year, planning and implementing their campaign to educate students and the community about the issue of teen dating abuse.

The HOSA students teamed up with various campus groups that included: Distributive Education Clubs of America, athletics, cheerleaders, Teen Leadership and Anti-Bullying Club.

Activities included art competitions, a poster campaign, classroom presentations by Women Together/Mujeres Unidas and GREAT officers, videos during school announcements, a photo campaign, sharing of information at parent meetings, presentations at area health fairs and two Mission CISD junior high schools, a conference with Mission Mayor Norberto Salinas and television media coverage.

A special 5K run and t-shirt sales not only helped raise awareness, but also helped raise money that was donated to Women Together/Mujeres Unidas.
