HOSA Update – 2014 Nationals

What a phenomenal first year for the MSHS HOSA team and their advisor, teacher Raeleen Epperson!

Although only in the first year of having a HOSA chapter, six MSHS students qualified for the national competition this past June. Held at Disney World in Orlando, Florida from June 25th through the 9th, these six Mt. Spokane students were the only HOSA national qualifiers from the Spokane area.

Pictured below, Jacob Lionello & Matthew Littleton pose with their Career Health Display. Other events and competitors included HOSA Bowl: Derek Bouvier, Devon Mead and Mahen Krishnakumar. Audrey Yaeger competed in Medical Photography.

Congratulations to these students! What an incredible way to begin this program!

MSHS Raises Awareness for ALS

The Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS was noticed and valued by Mt. Spokane staff and students this past month.

Thankfully, the purpose behind the challenge was not lost in translation. In addition to dropping freezing water over heads, multiple people within our community have raised money to support ALS research.

As examples, both the Mt. Spokane Band program and administrative team took the challenge. (See the links below.) Special thanks to everyone in our MSHS community for helping to spread the word!

Alumni Update – Sebastian Green – Class of 2014

Sebastian Greene will be a freshman at Western Washington University this fall, and like all incoming college students, he has many new challenges to navigate.

The 2014 graduate from MSHS, however, also has the additional challenge of acclimating to college life as an amputee patient.

The victim of a horrific car accident, Sebastian made the difficult decision to have his lower right leg amputated. As a result, he is moving positively forward with his life, and we are extremely proud of this incredibly strong young man.  He is an accomplished debater and gifted student, and his goals will surely be fulfilled when he arrives on campus in a few weeks.

Please take a moment to read about Sebastian by clicking the following link HERE.

Everyone at MSHS wishes Sebastian the best as he heads to Bellingham!
