Emily Hathcock - Postsecondary/Collegiate Vice President
“Only in the darkness can you see the stars”- Martin Luther King Jr.
Ever since she can remember, Emily has always wanted to be in service to others in any way she possibly can. When she walked into her first CERT competition 4 years ago, aside from being nervous about triaging for the first time, she knew right away HOSA would give her a chance to make a difference in someone’s life. From serving her community through her local Emergency Management Department throughout the last several years, Emily witnessed the greater impact that HOSA could have on this world and how HOSA truly is the bridge between health science in the classroom and the working field of medicine. Emily is currently a sophomore at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC, majoring in Biology and Government with the plan to attend medical school. One day, she also hopes to work on Capitol Hill advocating for public health. Emily plans on being an advocate for HOSA beyond her postsecondary/collegiate education, ensuring future members have the chance to call this organization home. She encourages every HOSA member to take advantage of every single opportunity while remembering to be their very best, even if the journey gets tough at times. Aside from HOSA and cheering on the Wofford Terriers, Emily loves to paddleboard in the Charleston Harbor, spend lots of time with her dogs, lives on caffeine, and go for hour-long drives listening to music. Emily cannot wait to watch HOSA members reach for the stars and more in all that they take on, as they unlock their potential in the upcoming year!
