ALCs Provide Brittany Vang with Lifelong Memories


This year, the 2019 Area Leadership Conference (ALC) at the San Joaquin County of Education was, again, another fantastic experience for me! As the WRHS HOSA chapter president, I got to be a part of the planning committee and help run the event, which pushed me to further reach out of my comfort zone and put on my best image as a representative of the WRHS HOSA chapter.

Additionally, there were so many highlights of the day that marks it as a very successful win for our chapter. We were able to bring almost all of the chapter members, which makes me feel accomplished inside because I know how hard the planning committee and district staff work to make this event happen. No doubt, our chapter seemed to be the loudest on that day, in a good way. Hearing them cheer for their fellow peer’s success is heartwarming to see because it demonstrates the strong support and connections we can build as a HOSA chapter family. To add on, we even placed second for our chapter poster of which was beautifully made by Lou Vang. Not only this, but so many students from our chapter placed third or better in their event, which goes on to reveal how hard-working and diligent our members are. I was luckily able to place third for the Extemporaneous Writing event. Our prompt was “Define Your Purpose,” and I was delighted that the judges were able to look favorably upon my paper and allow me the opportunity to take pride in my work. Hopefully, our chapter will also get a fantastic turnout at the State Leadership Conference that is coming up as well.

Although I may have been busy running around all day, the results were worth it. Our amazing members, caring advisor, and supportive staff/teachers that were present made the day one to remember. Events like these are just one of the many reasons why I continue to want to serve as an officer because I can feel fulfilled with my duty. I hope that as the year continues, our chapter will continue to grow and that our members can have more quality experiences such as ALCs.
