West Ashley HS Students Compete at Technology Student Association State Event

Technology Student Association LogoStudents from West Ashley High School recently participated in the annual state competition event for Technology Student Association (TSA).

The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national, non-profit organization of middle and high school students who are engaged in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Since TSA was chartered in 1978, almost 4,000,000 student members have participated through challenging competitions, leadership opportunities, and community service.

West Ashley HS TSA adviser Robert Stone said “This year’s state conference was a success. We competed in both the CO2 Dragsters and Future Technology Teacher events.”

“One of our team members, Matt Baumgardner placed 3rd in the state for the Future Technology Teacher category. This was awesome considering it’s only our first year as a TSA chapter”, added Mr. Stone. In the Future Technology Teacher category, competing students investigate technology education preparation programs in higher education and test their potential as a future technology educator.

Thank you Mr. Stone for sharing this CTE Student Success Story, and congratulation Matt on your well deserved trophy – It’s wonderful that you’re preparing for a career working as a STEM Educator!
