Hello, National TSA! My name is Jack Crawford, and I am honored to represent you as TSA’s national president for the 2016-2017 school year. I am a senior at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia, and this is my seventh year as an active member of this association. I have served as chapter treasurer, parliamentarian, vice president, state reporter and president, and national vice president.

Outside of TSA and a rigorous academic schedule, I have broadened my experiences as much as possible by participating in my school’s Student Council, Class Cabinet, BETA club, American Sign Language club, National English Honor Society, Y-Club, and the 500 member marching band, as well as serving my county in a youth leadership league initiative. I hope to one day become a lawyer.

TSA has been essential in shaping me into who I am today and I only hope to ensure that it continues to remain as influential in its members’ lives for years to come. I stand by my promise of representing you to my utmost capability and I look forward to what we will accomplish working together this year!

Hello TSA! I am your 2016-2017 National TSA Vice President, Zac Quinby! I am from the grand state of Oklahoma where I held the positions of State Representative and State Vice President. I am currently attending Woodward High School where I serve as the President for both the National Honor Society and the Student Council. I am also this year’s Woodward Student Citizen of the Year.

I am beyond excited to be serving our outstanding organization - TSA! We, as TSA, are the leaders of today and of tomorrow in both technology and life. TSA provides an opportunity for education through participation in events. A few of my personal favorites are: Chapter Team, Architectural Renovation and Extemporaneous Speech. These key events will assist me in accomplishing my ultimate goals in life—becoming an architect and structural engineer. I cannot wait to serve this year and see where TSA can take us and where we can take TSA!  

SECRETARY

Hi National TSA! I’m Erin Sullivan, and I am honored to serve you as your 2016-2017 National TSA Secretary. I am a senior at Abingdon High School and this year will be my seventh in TSA. Previously, I was elected as Virginia TSA’s secretary for two terms and president for one. Aside from TSA I am a member of the Marching Band, Choir, Highlands Youth Ensemble, National Honor Society, Student Council Association, Senior Class President and volunteer at the YWCA.

To me, TSA is a family. We bond over business meetings, a shared loved for our projects and leave with new found friends from all over the country. TSA's core is competition but for me it has turned into friendly competition. It is amazing to see friends place well in their competitions. The support shared by every member is truly amazing. It makes TSA the unique environment that I love.

My favorite competitions are Chapter Team and Prepared Presentation due to the public speaking aspect. Once I graduate I want to double major in political science and neuroscience. My dream is to be a medical examiner while holding a public office. Thank you for electing me to serve you and I wish you all the best of luck this year!

Hi National TSA, I am Javonate Williams, your National TSA Treasurer. I am a graduating senior at Scotland Early College High School in North Carolina. I have served North Carolina TSA as the state Sergeant-At-Arms, state Reporter and state President. Outside of TSA I participate in BETA club and Student Government.

Reporter

Deep Run
High School
Glen Allen,VA.

Hello, National TSA! I am Aala Nasir, and I am honored to be serving as your 2016-2017 National TSA Reporter. I am a rising junior and am a part of Deep Run High School’s TSA chapter. This is my fifth year in TSA, and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to give back to an organization that has given so much to me. I have previously served my chapter in several officer positions and was privileged to serve as the Virginia TSA Parliamentarian.

TSA has opened many doors for me and exposed me to graphic design through Communications Challenge and Desktop Publishing. I have also enjoyed the engineering aspect through competing in Biotechnology Design and Engineering Design. Outside of TSA, you can find me building robots and competing in VEX Robotics, conducting research experiments at a local university, or partaking in various volunteer activities. One day I would like to pursue a career either as a biomedical engineer or a doctor.

Hello, TSA! My name is Lauren Kim, and I am honored to be serving as your 2016-2017 national TSA Sergeant-At-Arms. I am a rising senior at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School, and as I enter my final TSA season as a member I am so fortunate for all the leadership opportunities TSA has given me. From my various chapter office positions to my role as the Pennsylvania State Sergeant-at-Arms. TSA has allowed me to gain my voice. Outside of TSA, I am involved in other activities such as student council, Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership, and the Anti-Defamation League.

In TSA, I love competing in events such as Prepared Presentation and Fashion Design and I know that the skills I have learned in TSA will aid me in my future endeavors. TSA has given me a platform to pursue my passions and with this year’s theme, “Defining Your Future” I am excited to see what opportunities lie ahead.

As for my future, I hope to pursue a career in business and eventually start my own company. I am excited to serve you this coming school year and I hope to see you at the National TSA Conference in Florida!
