Several Williamson County Schools HOSA students spent a few days of their summer in Dallas competing at the 2018 HOSA International Competition, and three students returned to Tennessee with national awards under their belts.

From June 27-30, Dallas was home to more than 7,000 competitors in 56 different categories.

Summit High’s Tyler Stallings, Summit High’s Lori Hanes and Nolensville High’s Rishi Pillai all placed in their respective categories. Tyler was in the Top 10 Interviewing Skills competition; Lori placed in the Top 10 percent for her HOSA Happenings project; and Rishi placed in the Top 10 for Researched Persuasive Writing and Speaking.

Independence High School was also named an Outstanding HOSA Chapter.

“This is all pretty awesome, especially knowing that there were more than 7,000 students competing,” said Summit High teacher Christina Isong. “We are so proud of our students.”
