The members of HOSA at Harris County are now preparing for the upcoming state competition starting on March 7th. The hopes are high and everyone is filled with excitement for State. They plan to have even better results than the last time they entered the competition. This might be a difficult accomplishment according to how successful they have been in the past.
Some participants that placed in the last competition; that are returning back to compete this year. In the last competition, they had achievements and awards given to the schools program and individuals as well. The students involved in HOSA really enjoy the club and everything it has to offer.
So as students of Harris County, we must wish them the best of luck and wait back to hear more about how the team does in the conference. If all goes well, they will be able to compete in nationals.

By: Shelby Hagler
Harris County’s teacher of the year for 2012-2013, Toi Bone has not only been a blessing in the classroom, but also as the leader of Key Club. Key Club is a well rounded organization that promotes community service; she encourages everyone to join.
“This club is an excellent opportunity for students to get out there and help give back to their community. This club really looks great on college applications and can really open children’s’ eyes to the sufferings of others,” says Bone.
This club offers students the opportunity to meet new people, build lifelong friendships, and gives students the chance to give back to their community. Some of the community projects members participate in are Unicef, Adopt a Child program, Humane Society, FOCUS, March of Dimes, and Relay for Life.
“This program often helps students realize how much they can help others and the positive affects they can have on others. After becoming a member of key club I feel like it has helped me grow up and learn the importance of giving and helping others,” says senior Key Club member Lindsey Hurst.
Key Club meets on Tiger Club days and sometimes they hold after school meetings. Their next meeting will be February 26. It is not too late to join; the fee to be a member is twenty dollars.

Harris County reaches out to students helping them dig deeper into their artistic ability through National Art Honors Society, which is a club headed by the art teacher, Ms. Sondra Palmer. It is for dedicated students trying to enrich their understanding for art and gives them unbelievable opportunities to show off their talents.
This club is for people trying to pursue an artistic career; this is not a club open to everyone, but for dedicated artists that will take this opportunity seriously. NAHS meets the second Tuesday of every month, and meetings are not optional.
Members get the chance to attend and submit artwork at various showcases such as the Perry, Georgia National Art Fair Show, the All State Art Symposium at Kennesaw State University, and the Academic Bowl. These art shows bring students from all over Georgia together to be judged.
“As an artist, it allows me to connect with other artists and collaborate on ideas while also learning new ways to do art and experimenting with new mediums. I have also helped to teach art and be a mentor to others,” says senior vice president of NAHS, Macie Poague.

Often times, students have nowhere to turn to for worship and Christian guidance on campus. FCA, also known as Fellowship Christian Athletes, is a club designed to provide a place for students to come together and learn more about their shared Christian beliefs.
Abigail Robinson, president of FCA, explains that its purpose is to “make more time for devotional and lead kids to Christ.” Anyone is eligible to join this club and participate. FCA challenges students to take the adventure of receiving Jesus Christ every Thursday morning from 7:30-7:50 AM. Filters and posters are dispersed around HCHS with more information. Often times, chicken biscuits are handed out freely on Thursday mornings, so be sure to come out with your classmates and fellow FCA members.
