Harriton Technology Student Association (TSA) wins three titles at National Conference

Twelve students from Harriton High School's Technology Student Association (TSA) recently traveled to National Harbor, Maryland to participate in the 2019 National TSA Conference. The Rams had high hopes for this year's competition after advancing through a gauntlet of local, regional and state qualifiers as more than 250,000 high school students from throughout the country began the year in hopes of making it to the national stage and the Harriton representatives did not disappoint.

The Rams turned in an outstanding all-around performance as they claimed three national championships, one third-place and two additional top-ten finishes. Sarah Xi was also awarded a coveted Future Technologist Scholarship from CompTIA based on her exemplary academic achievements, dedication to TSA and commitment to community service.

Ben Abt completed his duties as the 2018-2019 National TSA Reporter by hosting each general session for the 8,500 members in attendance. The team is very proud of his accomplishments on the national stage. Congratulations to all of this year's participating students!
