TSA's 2004 National Conference

June 20-24, 2004

This year’s national conference took place at the prestigious Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. The hotel featured sky lit gardens, spacious ballrooms, an indoor river with fish & ducks, and many restaurants.

The conference took place over a five-day period from June 20th-24th.  The TSA Members boarded the bus to Nashville at 5 AM in the morning! Most arrived around 3 PM and immediately began exploring Music City, USA. The advisors set up trips to various places such as:   Hard Rock Café, Wild Horse Saloon, Opry-Mills (a shopping center), and the Springhouse Golf course.

On Wednesday evening, the American Cancer Society Relay for Life was held, and West Virginia sported a very creative banner. The 2003-2004 State Officers and Titus Schoolcraft from Clay High School designed it, and everyone signed it! A few members walked the entire two hours, and West Virginia donated about sixty dollars to the American Cancer Society.

Between general sessions, competitions, trips, and much more, Nashville was a very exciting but tiring city! By the end of the conference, everybody was exhausted! West Virginia was proud to have 16 finalists and five trophy winners!
