There was screaming, celebrating, and happy tears on June 24th, a sweltering hot day in Dallas, Texas, as (4) Health-Related Technology (HRT) students from Abraham Lincoln High School CTE program took the stage at the 46th annual HOSA international leadership conference.

The team of E. Cesar, N. Fofana, C. Ossai, and R.O. Ossai competed in the Public Service Announcement (PSA) event. They took the stage to be acknowledge for placing in the Top 10, internationally, in their event. The event provides members with the opportunity to use technology to produce a video public service announcement that informs the community about an important health issue.  The competition involved showing the PSA to a panel of judges as well as a presentation about the creative process. This event aims to inspire members to be proactive future health professionals by producing a PSA to promote a health service organization, bring awareness to a health situation, or educate the public at large regarding health and well-being. 2022-2023 PSA Topic was: How to Talk to Friends and Family about Mental Health.  In addition to the Public Service Announcement team, Lincoln’s second team presented in the Public Health category, a highly competitive event.

The students were not the only ones to take the BIG stage, Lincoln’s teacher Fran McAdams was acknowledged as an outstanding advisor.
