TSA Spirit Night at Chick-fil-A

Come to Chick-fil-A of Waynesboro for dinner with your family and raise money for students in the Technology Student Association to be able to attend their national conference in Dallas, Texas. Be sure to come between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. and tell the cashier at Chick-fil-A that you are with Wilson Memorial High School TSA, and a percentage of your order will be donated to your school! You are welcome to support your group through our drive-thru as well.

The Technology Student Association (TSA) is the only student organization devoted exclusively to the needs of students interested in technology. Open to students enrolled in or who have completed technology education courses, TSA’s membership includes over 150,000 middle and high school students in 2,000 schools spanning 48 states. TSA is supported by educators, parents and business leaders who believe in the need for a technologically literate society. Members learn through exciting competitive events, leadership opportunities and much more. The diversity of activities makes TSA a positive experience for every student. From engineers to business managers, our alumni credit TSA with a positive influence on their lives.

In the past the Wilson Chapter, advised by Maura Stout and Matthew Haskins, has traveled to Dallas, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; Orlando, Florida; and Baltimore, Maryland, for the organization’s national conference. It’s a great opportunity to for a student to travel, meet new people, and learn more about technology.

The 2011 National TSA Conference will be held from June 21st to June 25th at the spectacular Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas in the greater Dallas area. During this annual conference over sixty middle school and high school technology based student competitions will be held. Also taking place will be leadership training, a career and education fair, and a program sponsored by TSA’s national service partner, the American Cancer Society. Approximately 4500 people from all across the country are expected to attend. This conference is an approved educational event by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

Even if you aren’t involved or don’t know someone who is, just mention the name to help some kids make it to Dallas.
