Hope your 15-16 year is memorable and productive.
- GA TSA Has Outstanding NLC
The GA TSA state delegation represented us all with pride and outstanding effort. AC Williams and Jack Crawford campaigned with class. Our new state officers led by Trevor Terry performed professionally. They're going to be a great team. With nearly 6400 in attendance, 15 GA TSA Chapters placed in the top ten in 20 events. Monroe Area HS earned Mr. Bush a going away gift in the form of 5 top 10 places and a National Championship in CNC Production, Parkview HS TSA placed 4 in the top 10 and took home a National Championship in Extemporaneous Speech. Harris Carver County Middle School won third place in System Control Technology and Tucker HS and Lowndes HS VEX Teams both made it to the Elite Eight and Tucker finished 4th in the National TSA Tournament. The other schools earning finalist pins and an appearance on stage were - GSMST, A.R. Johnson, Swainsboro HS, Hahira MS, Lowndes HS, Lambert HS, Chamblee HS, Union County HS, Hart County HS, Chattanooga Valley MS and South Forsyth HS. In addition, Georgia's contribution to the National Officer Team for 14-15, A.C., Laura Wilson and Leigh Ann Hamlin were outstanding. Our voting delegates were great during a marathon debate during the business meeting and last but definitely not least, Jack Crawford was elected at the National Vice President for 2015-16. Congratulations to all that represented our great state in Texas whether you made the stage or not and thank you all for an outstanding year in GA TSA! - SP
