GWA Technology Student Association members competed at the Georgia State Leadership Conference Classic Center in Athens where Megan McGoldrick won state in Extemporaneous Speech. Megan's topic was how TSA prepared her for success in her future career and in life. When asked to share some of the points made in her speech, Megan replied, "TSA helped introduce me to competitive events, allowed me to build connections with other like-minded individuals and taught me how to learn from past failures." More than 200 schools were represented at the conference, and over 2,000 students attended the convention. GWA’s TSA continues to improve, and this year we celebrate our first state champion along with Sara Bryan and George Zupko finishing third in Challenging Technology Issues. All three winners have qualified for Nationals in Atlanta in June. Several other students placed in the top ten in various categories for both middle and upper school.
