The following students were elected in June at the 34th National TSA Conference in Nashville, Tennesse to represent TSA for the 2012-2013 school year.
Harriton High School
Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania
Hello National TSA! I am beyond excited to be serving as your national TSA president this year. I still remember sitting in the audience in Orlando at my first national conference, and I cannot believe the incredible TSA journey. I first started participating in TSA in 7th grade at Welsh Valley Middle School in Pennsylvania and I do not take for granted the skills and experiences that TSA has provided me.
After starting 9th grade at Harriton High School, I developed a wide variety of interests outside of TSA. I love reading about politics and the world. I love learning about the sciences, and would love to pursue chemistry as a career path. I also enjoy running and have participated in a triathlon. One of my favorite pastimes is watching reruns of popular TV comedy shows.
If you would like to contact me at any time during the year, whether to provide input or tell me how your chapter or state is doing, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org !
As I enter my senior year at Hardin Valley Academy in Knoxville, Tennessee it is interesting to reflect on how much I have changed and learned in the past ten years.
I spent ten years playing soccer but have spent the last two years playing tennis and ultimate Frisbee instead. I once intended to major in business but have since changed my projected major to philosophy. In the last two years, I have even become a vegetarian.
The biggest factor that has influenced how much I have changed and learned over the years has been TSA. One way I will never change, however, is in my love for and focus on my family and friends.
Hello TSA, I am Kathleen Capdesuner from Kissimmee, FL. As a senior drama major at an arts school, I am thrilled to be directing my first production of a full length play and to be serving as your national TSA secretary on this year’s officer team! Whenever I am onstage performing or working on my competitive events such as Chapter Team, you can catch me driving my 1999 Toyota Corolla. In my free time, I love to go to Universal Studios/Island of Adventures and ride my favorite rollercoaster: the Incredible Hulk. I look forward to seeing all of you at the 35th annual national TSA conference in Orlando in my home state of Florida!
Hi National TSA, I'm Kaitlyn Beans, your 2012-2013 national TSA treasurer. I am a 17 year old senior at Brewbaker Technology Magnet High School in Montgomery, Alabama. Besides TSA, I am a member of HOSA and FBLA, but TSA has my heart. I also love to play sports! I am a member of my school’s varsity basketball, volleyball, and track and field teams. I am also involved in student government and an active member of my church. After graduation, I plan to attend the University of Alabama and major in sports medicine. I am very excited about TSA this year and hope that you are too! I plan to serve you to the best of my abilities and do everything I can to contribute to TSA.
Hi! I’m Tess McNerlin, your newly elected national TSA reporter. I’m an upcoming junior at Abingdon High School in Abingdon, Virginia. TSA is a great big part of my life. I am involved at the chapter, regional, state and national levels. Outside of TSA I run, play tennis, play a little golf here and there, teach violin, work, and sing at my church and school. I love to have fun with my friends, but I also strongly believe in getting down to business when there is work to be done.
It’s always been a dream of mine to represent TSA nationally, and I am extremely honored to have the opportunity to do so. I’m really grateful for the team members I get to work with this year. You have elected some great officers with awesome goals and we are ready for some hard work. Your thoughts and opinions are eagerly welcomed. Send us an email anytime you have something to say. We’re here to listen. I’m so excited for this year in TSA; it’s going to be a great one!
Hi National TSA! My name is Gus White and it is my distinct honor to serve you and our organization as the 2012-2013 national TSA sergeant- at- arms! This year I will be a junior at Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga, TN where I will enter my 6th year in TSA. My favorite events in TSA are Career Prep, Medical Technology Issues, and Leadership Strategies. Outside of TSA, my interests are varied, but some activities I particularly enjoy are playing baseball and golf, listening to music (Country and Classic Rock), debating current events, and boating.
Since I became a member of TSA in 6th grade I’ve always been excited heading into the new school year, but I’m especially excited this year to be able to work with the rest of the national officer team and help make your TSA experience more enriching! So with this in mind, I would love to hear any thoughts you might have (or if you just want to talk) and I encourage you to contact me via my officer email email@example.com . I wish you all the best of luck in the coming year and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in Orlando next June!
