Hello Tennessee TSA, my name is Joe Blair, and I am excited to be your 2022-23 TN TSA State Reporter. I am a Senior at Oak Ridge High School and have been a part of TSA since 6th grade. I look forward to getting to serve you and your chapter throughout this TSA season. Throughout my TSA experience I have made some of my greatest friendships and memories. I hope that I can help to give a similar experience to all TN TSA students.
Outside of TSA I enjoy running cross country, acting in local and high school theater, serving as the President of the ORHS National Honors Society, working with the Clinch River Environmental Studies Organization, and serving as their student representative. I also enjoy playing guitar and singing in my garage band named “Jack and Cute Boys”. My favorite event for TSA competition is Technology Bowl.
This year I hope to improve TN TSA’s chapter-to-state communication as well as the state-to-chapter communication. I believe it is essential for chapters to have any questions regarding competitions clarified and any information regarding new updates in events and times to be clarified as well. I will look to increase the amount of chapters participating in Memo Monday, create a GroupMe for all chapter advisors, state officers, and state advisors to give information and answer questions, and improve the communication of competitive event updates to the chapters, state officers, state advisors, and judges. I cannot wait to start working as your 2022-2023 State Reporter.
