John Paul Engel gave the keynote address at this years state HOSA leadership conference in Ankney, IA. Students from all over the state of Iowa came to develop their leadership skills at this annual event. West High School senior Jenny Joaquin and John developed a leadership workshop that used a simulated plane crash to demonstrate the value of team work. Each member of the team was given a disability and the students needed to work together to get each other to safety. The sessions were well received and one advisor said, "This is the best speaker we have had at HOSA in five years."
