Members of several St. Lucie County high school HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) organizations attended a leadership conference in the beautiful facility of Camp Kulaqua in High Springs, Florida, accompanied by their teachers. The Leadership Development Camp, or LDC, was definitely worth it all. St. Lucie West Centennial HOSA officers left for that weekend in hopes of learning skills to become more effective leaders, and that goal was accomplished. HOSA members from Treasure Coast and Fort Pierce Central high schools also attended, along with over 300 HOSA students from all over Florida. participants learned skills in communication, public speaking, problem solving, and so much more. The food was great, too! There wasn’t a minute wasted at camp and making friends wasn’t hard at all. Overall, the weekend activities were very beneficial for the chapters. A quote used during the event, “Good things happen to those who wait, but great things happen to those who chase,” was adopted by the participants.
