From the summer I first attended the THOA Conference as a guest, I knew I wanted to be involved in this wonderful organization.
From member to Area 3 Director, then to President-Elect 2021-2022, and I am humbled and exceptionally proud to represent THOA as your president.
THOA and its members make teaching Health Sciences an adventure and rewarding labor of love. We share and support one another through our website, Facebook page, and directly through email.
As president, my platform for the next year is increased communication and membership growth.
By definition, communication is the exchange of information or news. We teach communication in our classrooms, and share our knowledge with patients, family, and other staff.
Without communication, we would be silent and would not grow. So, let's communicate! Reach out to other Health Science instructors, share THOA, and share knowledge.
Our board welcomes new to the below areas:
Area 2- Sharita Harmon
Area 4 E.-Bobbie Kite
Area 5-Jeni Carbone Williams
Area 6-Danielle McDaniel
Congratulations to Drieca Hopkins for her move to Treasurer-Elect and Alisha Smith for her move to President-Elect. We continue to grow and reflect on new ideas and new ways to make THOA strong.
Please watch the website and your emails for communications, and please respond. We love to hear from our members.

With deepest respect,
M. Michele Knorpp, LVN
