HOSA Car Show Planned at SICTC April 28


The students at the EVSC’s Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center involved in the
Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) organization, are hosting a car show this Saturday
from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes research. The show will take place at the
Career Center, 1901 Lynch Road. All car entries are $10. Admission to view the cars is free. This is the
fifth year the group has sponsored the show.

The organization feels it is important to raise awareness of Juvenile Diabetes because the rate
of Type 1 diabetes incidence among children under the age of 14 is estimated to increase by 3 percent
annually worldwide, and there is no cure. Each year, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults –
approximately 80 people per day – are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in the U.S.
SICTC serves about 700 students from Vanderburgh, Posey, North Gibson and South Gibson
counties, and the southern half of Spencer County. It offers 20 courses of study in 11 different career
clusters. The Career Center is identified by the National Research Center for Career and Technical
Education as one of the top five secondary career centers in the United States.
