Representatives from the Health Science and Sports and Exercise Science programs recently participated in the HOSA fall leadership conference at the Columbus Convention Center on Nov. 8. HOSA is a career-technical student organization for those in health-based career pathways. The conference included breakout sessions on leadership, member and officer involvement, and chapter opportunities.
During the recent National FFA Convention in Indianapolis the Cedarville/Greene County Career Center FFA chapter was honored with one of the highest awards that the National FFA can bestow. Less than one percent of all FFA chapters are able to qualify for the prestige of being named a two-star, gold-rated chapter. To achieve the award the chapter must have successfully planned and conducted 20 events in their community, partner with local organizations and show an impact in their school. The selection process included numerous rounds of vigorous evaluations at the local, state, and national levels. This is the first time the Cedarville/GCCC chapter has obtained this high honor.
Alumni, former staff and community members converged on GCCC on September 14 to celebrate the school's 50th annivesary. All told, over 1,200 people attended to renew old friendships, reminisce, tour the building and take advantage of all the activities that evening. State Representative Bill Dean presented proclamations to Superintendent David Deskins and first director Wallace Gossett.
On May 19, our grandparents of our current juniors are invited to GCCC for breakfast and to spend time in their grandchild's career-technical program. The day begins with registration from 8-8:30 a.m. Breakfast will be served at 8:15. Click through for more information.
GCCC celebrated academic and career-technical achievement with the annual National Technical Honor Society induction Ceremony on April 26. Juniors and seniors were recognized for performance in their career-technical and academic classes, outstanding attendance and strong personal qualities.
The team of Makenna Jones (Beavercreek), Valerie Anderson (Beavercreek), Tessa George (Xenia) and Chelsea Boone (Fairborn) placed SECOND at the HOSA State Leadership Conference at the University of Toledo.

Congratulations to the team and Health Science teachers Faith Sorice and Lyna McKinley.
