Preparation, hard work and dedication paid off for Technology Student Association when they competed and placed at the Spring Leadership Conference at CSI on Mar. 8 and 9.

 David Hill (10) placed first in Coding. When asked about his experience with the competition, Hill replied, “It was my first time, so it was fun. Before events, I was nervous, but during and after events it went away because you get into it, and it just becomes fun. I talked to people who had been there before and they gave me confidence.” Hill competed in six events, but coding was his best. “In coding, you bring all the stuff you need and as I sat down, I looked around and people had these huge things and all these jump drives plugged into their computers and I just had this little laptop, like, ‘I’m just going to code!’ But, I did good, and that was fun.”

 Gunnar Batalden (12) also placed first in 3D Computer Aided Design. When asked about what he designed, he replied, “I used a program on a computer and I made a little protective case for a device, that was what they had us make.”

 Other teammates also earned recognition. Serena Harris (9) earned second place in Photographic Technology, and Melissa Fluckinger (12) placed fourth in 3D Computer Aided Design. In the team events, Hill and Alex Nadauld (12) placed third in Structural Engineering, Hill and Fluckinger placed fourth in Architectural Design and David Matranga  (11) and Aaron Beck (12) received fourth place in Structural Engineering.

 Adviser David Heath was pleased with the results: “It went real well, the students did good and we enjoyed it and they all had fun.”
