The Carroll High School Medical Magnet program has produced a large number of students who have graduated and acquired jobs in local hospitals and nursing homes, with home health care, and in private sitting services. Many other CHS graduates have used the knowledge gained through this program to enroll in medical curricula at community and four-year colleges to further their education in the health field. The program, under the direction of Mrs. Shandria Newton, offers courses in Introduction to Health Occupations, Medical Terminology, First Responder, Certified Nursing Assistant, Pharmacy Technician and Sports Medicine I & II. An addition for the upcoming year will be Sports Medicine III.
Students earn their first aid, AED, and CPR cards through the First Responder and Certified Nursing Assistant courses, and some of them have used these credentials to obtain summer jobs as life guards or summer recreational assistants.
Students who participate in HOSA (the professional organization for health occupations students), have competed at the state and national levels and have garnered many accolades for their knowledge of all things medical.
The faculty within the department consists of the following members:
Newton, Shandria --- Medical Magnet Program Coordinator
Johnson, Catherine --- Certified Nursing Assistant, First Responder, Medical
Jones, Georgia --- Certified Nursing Assistant, Introduction to Health
Occupations, and Medical Terminology
Kyle, Christopher --- Pharmacy Tech and Sports Medicine I & II
