Students from the East Valley Institute of Technology’s centralized campuses won 13 gold medals and nine first-place rankings in this spring’s state competitions for career and technical education (CTE) in Arizona.

Every EVIT student belongs to a CTE student organization that has a corresponding competition:  SkillsUSA; Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA); Educators Rising Arizona; Arizona Culinary ProStart; and HOSA Future Health Professionals.

Students in the following EVIT programs were named state champions in their competitions:  Aesthetics, Radio/Audio Production, Machining Technology, Cosmetology, Welding, Early Childhood Education, Emergency Medical Technician, Pharmacy Technician, Medical Assistant, and Fashion, Interiors & Textiles. In addition, the EVIT HOSA Future Health Professionals chapter won first place for National Service Project by raising $12,133.50 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Congratulations to EVIT HOSA students and advisers for winning the "Top National Service Project" at the Arizona HOSA...

“An amazing performance by students means an amazing performance by teachers who have prepared students for their futures,” EVIT Superintendent Dr. Sally Downey said.

EVIT is a public school providing over 40 tuition-free career and technical education programs to high school students and adults residing in 10 East Valley districts – Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Higley, Fountain Hills, Apache Junction, Queen Creek and J.O. Combs. Students attend their high school for a half-day and one of EVIT’s centralized campuses – the Dr. A. Keith Crandell (Main) Campus, EVIT East, or Apache Junction High School – for the other half-day to receive career training. EVIT also provides tuition-based programs for adults.

Most of the top winners from EVIT will go on to compete in national events this summer. Students in HOSA Future Health Professionals who placed first, second or third have qualified for the HOSA International competition.
