Technology Student Association
Sponsor: RoxAnna Bolding
The Technology Student Association (TSA) is the national co-curricular CareerTech Student Organization for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) students. TSA chapters take the study of STEM beyond the classroom and give students the chance to pursue academic challenges among friends with similar goals and interests. Together, chapter members work on competitive events, attend conferences on the state and national levels and have a good time raising funds to get there. Chapter organization develops leadership, as members may become officers within their state and then run nationally. TSA chapters are committed to a national service project and are among the most service-oriented groups in the community.
Any student enrolled in Technology Engineering is a member of TSA and may be actively involved while enjoying the benefits of TSA membership including:
Student Leadership - students elect local chapter officers to establish chapter priorities and activities.
Contact with business - competitive events and classroom speakers provide students with a connection to the world of business and industry.
Students receive national recognition - through the achievement program which recognizes student achievements in community, school, and volunteer activities.
Teaches Civic Responsibility - a national service project award allows chapters to volunteer their efforts to help with a national concern.
