Five members of the HST 3 class receive a Certificate of Proficiency National Healthcare Foundation Skills Assessment.
The Career Tech Testing center in conjunction with the National Consortium on Health Science & Technology Education offered this skills test. This program is an entry level assessment that verifies student mastery of the knowledge and skills that provide the foundation for all health careers. Standards include academic foundation, systems, legal responsibilities, safety practices, health maintenance practices, technical skills, communications, employability skills, ethics and teamwork, notes HSTE instructor Dicque Oliver.
Students receiving certificates of proficiency on the NHFSA included Kayle Askins, Ariel Darden, Amy Highfield, Rachel Johnson and Haley Reynolds.
Fifteen SSHS students received certification in basic phlebotomy from Paris Junior College. They included Haley Ball, Kaci Crowson, Garrett Gray, Maurie Lewis, Kyra Manning, Spencer Martin, Jamie McKinnon, Stevie Moore, Mac Morgan, Staci Osornio, Lindsay Ramey, Yessenia Sanchez, Elizabeth Sheffield and Michael Wells.
In the basic phlebotomy class students learn terminology, test tube choices, phlebotomy sites, infection control standards, and how to use equipment necessary to draw blood.
“Our students actually get to ask teachers and parents to come and be volunteers on which to draw blood,” noted Oliver.
Quite a few members of the HSTE 1, 2 and 3 classes also earned special recognition from Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services’ Silver Lining volunteer program.
The Silver Lining program recognizes volunteers who work with the elderly and disabled.
“Our HST 2 and 3 students visit residents each Monday in a local nursing home to learn compassion and communication skills. The HST 1 students were recognized this year for helping with Prom,” Oliver said.
Among the health science technology students honored by Silver Lining were: Kayle Askins, Ariel Darden, Amy Highfield, Rachel Johnson, Haley Reynolds, Haley Ball, Kaci Crowson, Garrett Gray, Maurie Lewis, Kyra Manning, Spencer Martin, Jamie McKinnon, Stevie Moore, Mac Morgan, Staci Osornio, Lindsay Ramey, Yessenia Sanchez, Elizabeth Sheffield, Michael Wells, Hayley Brock, Colby Carter, Jessica Cowley, Abbey Eddins, Sidney Fawcett, Andrew Gregory, Kelton Jeter, Shelby Junot, Brooke Lancaster, Colette Mcduff, Brendy Molina, Kaley Perry, Dallin Sant, Jennifer Singleton, Ariel Spataro, Kendall Stieber, Ben Watson, Ashley Wilburn, Jaymee Wilson and Elexa Wood.
