Skyview High School

As a Senior at Skyview High School, I have learned a lot about myself through the Technology Student Association. This is my fifth consecutive year as a Chapter Officer, and my 2nd as a State Officer. Along side serving Montana TSA, I enjoy woodworking, fishing, backpacking, and camping, with various extra curricular activities between. Following high school, I plan to attend University of Montana to obtain a Masters Degree in Health and Human Performance, while still contributing a wide spread of knowledge and effort into technological development.

Hello my name is Jaclyn Green, I live in Kalispell Montana. I am the President of the Glacier High School TSA club, and am extremely honored to be a state officer. I have been involved in TSA for 4 years, and I was inspired to join the club because of my brother and sister, Joshua and Jessica Green, they were members of TSA when they were in high school. I am also involved in theatre, culinary, YoungLife, and Business Professionals of America. I love being involved in TSA and am thankful everyday for my club, Mr. Smith my advisor makes everyday an amazing day. Thank you all for the support and I can’t wait to meet everyone at state!

BECOMING A STATE OFFICER

 

One of the many benefits of TSA is the local, state and national leadership opportunities that are available to students. Please encourage your students to take advantage of these unique opportunities by encouraging them to run for a state office.

Montana TSA has six (6) officer positions - President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Reporter, and Sergeant-at-Arms.  Applicants DO NOT apply for a specific position. After being elected, all six State Officers will attend a CTSO Leadership Camp. At the conclusion of the camp, the State Officer Team will determine the appropriate position for each officer.  The State Officer Team is comprised to the six (6) TSA officers and the State TSA Advisor.

 

Candidates must complete the online application and the TSA State Officer Signature document. The signature document will need to be submitted by e-mail to jesse@montanatsa.com and kirk@montanatsa.com by March 18, 2022.  Applicants will be notified by the State Advisor if their application has been accepted.  Officer candidates will be expected to introduce themselves at the State Leadership Conference on March 28-29, 2022. Voting will take place during the delegate session.

 

By electing you to State TSA office, the membership entrusts the leadership of its organization to you and your fellow officers. With the acceptance of this honor come duties and responsibilities. Duty is defined, as “the conduct, obedience, loyalty, and submission required of an officer.

 

Responsibility is “the reliability and moral accountability for duties expected of an officer.” Together, duty and responsibility convey the conduct and performance appropriate to all Montana TSA State officers.
