2018 CTSO Day at the Capitol

Interviewing skills, wrapping an ankle, or even learning how to network with others -these are the types of skills students are learning in Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) pathways. CTAE integrates academic learning with hands-on and technical skills to help students prepare for their college education and beyond. With over 130 career pathways such as Health Science, Marketing, and Architecture, CTAE education is an opportunity for students to get a headstart on their future careers. Career Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) are co-curricular organizations with leadership programs and competitive events that help students maximize employability, gain leadership opportunities, and develop personal skills. CTSOs, like HOSA, are a vital part of CTAE and are preparing students for college and career readiness. Students in a career pathway and CTSO are better prepared for the working world and all that colleges throw at them.

On February 21, 2018, your Georgia HOSA State President-Elect, Callahan Thompson, and State Vice President, Smriti Suresh, had the opportunity to attend the annual CTSO Day at the Capitol! Along with CTSO students and other CTSO state officers from all over Georgia, they had the opportunity to advocate to legislators and representatives from the Georgia Department of Education. The main purpose of the day was to thank our state’s amazing leaders for all that they do for our organizations and show them why CTSOs are a vital part of Georgia education. Without the support from the Department of Education and legislators, we would not have the opportunity to Be the Future of Healthcare. Your state officers would like to extend a special thank you to all Georgia HOSA members that visited the Capitol with us. We also encourage other chapters to take advantage of this opportunity to network and attend next year’s CTSO Day at the Capitol!
