  Health Science Students Going to National Competition
     Health Science students from the Senatobia-Tate County Career and Technical Center recently attended the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) State Leadership Conference. These students represented Tate County very well and those who placed at state competition are now eligible to go to the International HOSA Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida in June. According to Karen Burns, Instructor, “The students could not have done as well as they did without the help of the area community businesses that helped train these students. Many thanks go to Batesville Crime Lab, Cornerstone Rehabilitation, North Oak Regional Medical Center Nursing/Nursing Assistant Area, Northwest Community College RN Program, Senatobia Family Dentistry, and Hernando Urgent Care."
