- __Local MOAA Chapter visits Aviation Museum September 23, 2015
Members of the MSVC-MOAA received a guided tour of the Ernie Hall Aviation Museum which was founded in 2013 to recognize the contributions made by U.S. aviators in advancing aeronautics, particularly those with local ties.
Museum namesake, Earnest C. Hall was born in Trumbull County and flew with the Wright Brothers in 1909 before starting his own flight school in 1915 and operated the school continuously until his death in 1972.

- __ Canfield students put a modern twist on Bells Across America September 23, 2015
Bells Across America is a National movement to commemorate Constitution Week! This year, the Canfield Village Middle School 7th/8th grade girls volleyball team participated via Smartphone. Instead of actual bells, Erin Angelo, volleyball coach and DAR member, says “I thought it would be neat if the students downloaded a free bell app on their phone to participate in Bells Across America modern style!”
In 1955, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) asked Congress to designate September 17-23 as Constitution Week. In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed it into law. Bells Across America commemorated this historic week.
- __First ever HOSA meeting at TCTC September 23, 2015
This week at TCTC (Trumbull Career and Technical Center) a 2015/2016 HOSA meeting was held in Warren.
HOSA stands for Health Occupations Students of America. HOSA is the student organization for health occupation students at the secondary, post secondary, adult, and college level.
HOSA goals are to promote career opportunities in the healthcare industry, and also to enhance and promote the delivery of quality healthcare of people.
HOSA provides many opportunities for students to learn and achieve. One such opportunity is the skills competitions. Competitions are at three levels – local, state, and national – with students advancing on to the next levels by winning the previous ones.
HOSA offers more than 46 different events. Mrs. Rusnak, the Pharmacy Technician Instructor discussed the theme of HOSA, parliamentary procedure, and future meetings. Mrs. Meyer stated “The money TCTC collects from fundraising, will be used for the HOSA competitions that will occur.” This is an organization that includes four programs at TCTC: Pharmacist Technician, Pre-nursing, Exercise Science, and Biology Technicians.
All TCTC students from the four programs that were interested in the HOSA program filled out applications to become a HOSA officer. However, only a few were chosen. Teachers announced the new HOSA officers. The HOSA officers are: President: Joe Martin (bio tech), Vice President of Competitive Events: Monica Davis (Pharm tech) and Emily Koehler (bio tech) Vice President of Community Service: Jasmine Hickey (exercise science) and Jessica Roszak (exercise science) Treasurer: Brittany Kershaw (pre-nursing) Secretary: Miranda Miller (pre-nursing) Historian: Alexandria Dunbar (pharm tech) Reporter: Anissa Givens (pharm tech).
Congratulations to the new HOSA officers. The next HOSA meeting will take place at TCTC on October 23.
