ABOUT LAMBERT HIGH SCHOOL HOSA
Lambert High School, the newest high school in Forsyth County Georgia, opened for the 2009-2010 school year under the leadership of Dr. Gary Davison. The school is named in honor of Mr. Clarence Lambert who served Forsyth County Schools for numerous years, LHS is located in the south end of Forsyth County at the intersection of Old Atlanta Highway and Nichols Road in Suwanee.
The school is composed of grades 9-12, equaling approximately 2500 students. All of the Healthcare students at Lambert High School are encouraged to participate in a Career Technical Student Organization called HOSA-Future Health Professionals. HOSA is a national student organization endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education Division of ACTE. HOSA's two-fold mission is to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. HOSA's goal is to encourage all health occupations instructors and students to join and be actively involved. According to Krista Lowe and Doris Dickerson, Health Science Instructors/ HOSA Advisors at Lambert High School, “HOSA is about providing opportunities for students to learn and achieve. Students are members of both the Georgia State and National HOSA Chapters. Community service is one of the major activities that we are involved in. This year we have held two American Red Cross School Blood Drives, two American Red Cross Community Blood Drives, a Cancer Awareness basketball game, volunteered at the Northside Forsyth Festival of Lights, Forsyth County Food Drive, American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, and hosted a football game to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In April we plan to host a Warrior’s for Will 5K which will raise money to go for the Will Davison Memorial Scholarship and the Veterans Administration. As a HOSA chapter, we also fundraise for the student’s competitions at the regional, state and national level. HOSA offers 57 different competitive events that are curriculum based. Most recently, Lambert High School HOSA had over 30 students to place in the top three and will advance on to the HOSA National Leadership Conference. The goal of the program is to get students to stretch their learning potential.”
