Alumni Association

Alumni Tanise Montgomery is a medical laboratory scientist with Princeton Community Hospital in Princeton, WV

It's official! The HSTA Alumni Association was formally established on July 1, 2017! 

And we are thrilled to be here! We know that 22 years of HSTA graduates will lend this organization the dedication, strength, and support we need to grow. We look forward to creating a new support network for our HSTA family: the kids who are in the program today, the graduates who are working their way through college, and our family members who are now in the workplace.

Our first official action as an association is the nomination and election of our founding Board of Directors, and we are accepting nominations now through July 21. Open positions include President, President-Elect, Treasurer, Secretary, and five working group chairs. All active association members are eligible to run, and we are accepting self-nominations as well as nominations of friends and colleagues. For details, see the information provided under "Nominations Open for Our Founding Board of Directors" in the menu bar to the left.

If you are already an alumni member, wonderful! We're thrilled to have you, and we hope you consider getting involved. If not, thinking about joining! The more alumni we have working together, the faster we can grow and the stronger we can become.

Why a HSTA Alumni Association?

The purpose of the association is to bring together our HSTA graduates who want to stay in touch with friends, share stories, support each other, and give a little bit back to the program that gave a lot to us. We want to grow into an awesome association that gives all of us the chance to network, share resources, develop skills, and have fun! We also want to combine our efforts to support HSTA so it continues to be here for the West Virginia kids and communities that need it.

Whether your time is endless or limited, your contributions big or small, we hope you become an active, engaged HSTA alumni member!
