Hello Tennessee TSA, my name is Jake Officer and I am sincerely amazed to have the opportunity to serve as your 2020-2021 State Reporter. I am currently a junior at White County High School in Sparta, Tennessee.
While still newer to TSA, I have immensely fallen in love with the organization and have served to the best of my ability as both a local chapter officer as well as a member of the 2019-2020 Membership Committee. TSA has offered me plenty of outlets to express hobbies of mine as well as learning of the STEM concepts behind those hobbies. The interactions I have had in TSA, as well as support from my advisors, have inspired me to run ever faster towards my goal of working in the field of Cyber Security. TSA has helped me develop so much and I cannot wait to see all the opportunities to serve ahead of me in the coming year. When I’m not designing and redesigning a new board game for competition or sketching new pages for a children’s story, you might see me on the soccer fields, or maybe reading a good book high up in a tree.
Over this year I am dedicated to focusing on making TSA feel more personal to members as well as members having more input on the path TSA takes in the future. I am without words to describe how honored I am to work with the State officer team this year and work towards making TSA the best organization it can be.
