Career & Technical Student Organizations (CTSO)
By Hulbert, Mark
On behalf of student organizations at Grundy Area Vocational Center, I would like to take a moment to share a brief description of who we are. We are a high school career center that educates junior and senior students from Morris, Minooka, Gardner-South Wilmington, and Coal City. We also host satellite classes at Coal City High School for Criminal Justice and Coal City Early Childhood Center for Early Childhood Education that allows participation for Reedcuster and Wilmington students. Our student organizations are SkillsUSA and Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA).
Skills USA offers opportunities for students in Early Childhood, Building Trades, Welding, Automotive, Cosmetology, Criminal Justice, Computer Maintenance Technology, Computer Graphics & Multi-Media Design, Fire Science and many other career-focused areas. Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) provides practical experience in healthcare. HOSA is specifically for our Health Occupation students.
These student organizations compete at the local, state, and national level for opportunities to win prizes, equipment/materials, and scholarships. If you have questions regarding fundraising, donations, or activities, please contact our advisors; Ms. Eungard or Mr. Terrel (SkillsUSA) and Mrs. Squellati (HOSA).
