TSA News
TSA is a national organization that is doing some new and exciting things here at Mary Persons! Did you know that by being a member of the Technology Student Association, you can compete in events like music production, fashion design, digital video production, video game design and so many others? The potential and previous member and parent drop-in meeting is on August 26th from 3:30-5:30 in the MP Tech Lab.

Perhaps the most important benefit of TSA membership is the inspiration and enthusiasm that students gain from receiving recognition for applying their knowledge. Demonstrating skills in a forum beyond school walls motivates students, especially when there is a large, like-minded audience of peers who support them. Other benefits include: 
  • Enhance technological literacy and leadership skills
  • Work on complex activities from start to finish
  • Compete on local, state and national levels
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Meet and work with business and industry leaders
  • Attend organized meetings
  • Network with students and teachers with similar interests from all over the United States
  • Contribute time and effort to a national service project
  • Receive national membership services, including the online TSA newsletter, School Scene
  • Receive recognition through TSA's honor society, scholarships and achievement programs
  • Have a voice in a national organization that is helping to shape the future of technology education
