Missouri HOSA's 2023 State Leadership Conference Keynote Speaker

Morris Morrison is obsessed with building Stronger, Kinder, Focused human beings. Along with his team at Windmill Park Media, Morris Morrison has become a world-class Entertainer, Show Host, Writer and Entrepreneur who's journey began in New York City before a doctor’s words changed his life forever, after being orphaned a second time.

Morris Morrison has been the go-to voice that has impacted countless youth, college & university and major corporate events that range from HR and Sales, to Supply Chain and Healthcare. After losing his parents in New York City and becoming orphaned a second time as a teen, early opportunities uncovered a unique brand of engagement that connects with all audiences and backgrounds, with an unforgettable message that sounds like a Hollywood movie script. Many of today’s world-leading organizations have partnered with Morris Morrison to build fearless, focused leaders that drive uncomfortable change and healthy disruption.

After receiving his education from Fairmont State University and the John Chambers College of Business and Economics at West Virginia University, Morris Morrison's business journey included critical leadership roles in Human Resources and Sales & Marketing, prior to exploring his dedicated path of entrepreneurship and culture building. Today, many global leaders have witnessed his message live on stage and in his latest book titled Disrupt Yourself. His message is powerful and his story is unforgettable, but his focus is clear — to bring families & teams closer and make organizations more impactful, through personal ownership, service and generosity.

Morris is best known for celebrating his biggest accomplishments off stage as a proud husband and father, with additional service to organizations including Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the YMCA and many others.

Trivia Night

Over 300 members plan to participate in our first HOSA SLC Trivia Night! With so many members up to the challenge, we have decided to increase the members on each team. Teams will be made of 6-10 players from each Local Chapter. Those at-large members and chapters with less than 6 members will be put together to form a combined team.

Check-in will start at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria and the questions will begin at 6:30 pm. Teams will be allowed to flow in and out of trivia based on competition needs. We will have a winner for each round and a combined round winner. We can't wait to see who will be our first Missouri HOSA Trivia Champion! 

Educational Symosium

Educational Symposium Presentations will be scheduled on hourly rotations throughout the conference at Rolla High School. All participants are strongly encouraged to attend these workshops on a variety of topics. Due to high demand at last year’s State Leadership Conference, our staff has added two additional presentations per hour. The practice of attending Educational Symposium presentations is a valuable way to teach student members the importance of attending a professional conference.
