TSA's 2003 National Conference Boasts Best Quality Competitions, Presenters, and Attendance In 25-Year History

June 25-29, 2003 

 

A 19 hour bus trip brought ninety-nine students and teachers from West Virginia to join nearly 4,000 TSA members from across the nation at the 25th National Conference in Orlando, Florida. With the theme, “TSA, Unveiling the Potential in You,” the conference unveiled student winners Cathy Lambey (Clay County HS) in Desktop Publishing, and the team from South MS in Leadership Challenge. West Virginia placed in the top ten in sixteen other events, which involved over 40 additional students!

 

Explaining how the quality of life in the modern world is driven by technology, noted expert in spacecraft design Dr. Jack Bacon delivered the keynote speech. He works at the NASA Johnson Space Center,

where his duties include assignments in the integrated architecture, design, and operations of the Shuttle and the International Space Station.

 

Students had a great time visiting local malls and restaurants and other attractions when not in general sessions or in competition.  The last day found us at Universal Studios for a day of fun in the sun--except it poured the rain and everyone ended up traveling 19 hours back to WV in wet clothes!!

 

P.S. Alta McDaniel, WV State Advisor, is the new president and chairman of TSA, Inc.
