Medical Transcription Course Leads to Profession The medical transcription course, taught by Mrs. June Moss, is a new course here this semester for smart students who want to get into the medical profession. Mrs. Moss returned this year to teach ^ the course. She last worked here in 1971 as \ the school nurse. The course, she says, is very hard. One requirement is typing. The student must be able to type at least 40 wpm. The course will accept students from any school. The student will be taught basic medical terminology, learning how to use modern transcription devices as well as the latest equipment in word processing. The student will also have "on-site" observa¬ tion in hospital medical record areas. This is a four semester course for in¬ terested students. It is offered in the business education department in conjunc¬ tion with the Health Professions Center. Students taking the course this semester are Synetra Marks, Michelle Todd, Penny Watts, Mercedes Southall, Charlene Clayton, Brenda Chaney, Jeannie Dunn, Sheri Norris, Kathleen Avant, and Kelly Newsome. The class is offered periods one-two and eight-nine. The course for one semester gives two credits. Classroom is room 335. A federally funded program, this is the first time the course has been offered in high school. If taken outside, the cost to enroll would be about $500. Interested students who would like to take the course next fall should see Mrs. Moss in room 338. c o ati niz CQ bo O -M n-Profi o ^ T? a> hf) iS m O U.S. P CO 155 o ^z; +j Perm <A CIS ndi ;. ^ ndiapa STUDENTS in Medical Transcription class Watts, Mercedes Southall, Michelle Todd. are being observed by teacher Mrs. June Moss.

Anyone carrying passing grades for four or more credits who will be a student here next year was eligible to run. They should also have some leadership experience. Candidates have already begun cam¬ paigning. Trina Baker was in charge of the elec¬ tions for the offices of president, vice- president, recording secretary, correspon¬ ding secretary, and treasurer. Running for each officers were: president —Angel Boiler, Angela Brown, Jill Cooper, Brian Peacher; vice- president—Julie Mitchell, Jenny Neville; corresponding secretary-Shelly Mcln¬ tyre, Tonya West, Karen Worland; recor¬ ding secretary — Angela Murray, Denise Van Horn; treasurer —DaLana Dixon. Candidates were chosen by majority votes. 8 Students Attend Engineering Program Sponsored by RCA Eight people have been chosen to par¬ ticipate in the Minorities Engineering Pro¬ gram sponsored by RCA for this semester. There are four freshman — Angela Mur¬ ray, Steve Hall, Steve Fenton, and Richard Bass, and four sophomores —Shelly Mcln¬ tyre, Dwayne Saxton, Max Siegel, and Frankie Griffin —who are representing CAHS. During the two hour meetings through the week, "It's kind of boring," say's Sax¬ ton, because "All you do is listen to a lecture for one hour and go on tour of RCA for the other hour." The three hour meetings on Saturdays which are called workshops are much more fun because the students actual¬ ly get to make their own radios, calculators, or clocks. Mrs. Sylvia Ketterman who recommend¬ ed the Sophomores said she chose them because she knew they would be interested. Mr. Vivian Jones had to consider the freshmen's English and Math scores. Additional students will be chosen to at¬ tend the engineering program this summer at IUPUI.
