Hey Tennessee TSA! My name is Mark Nashi and I am so excited to serve as your 2022-2023 State Treasurer. I am currently a junior at Signal Mountain Middle High School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I joined TSA in the 8th grade and I had no idea how much it would impact my life.
I've always loved competitions like Science Bowl, but TSA was different. During the state conferences, I would build lasting connections with other people and my own chapter. I furthered my passion for neuroscience and debate through TSA, and I wanted to give back to the organization. I joined the Membership Committee my sophomore year and became a chapter officer. I learned so much about leadership through these experiences and valued them as I ran for a bigger role.
Outside of TSA, you can find me debating in Mock Trial, tutoring in math and science, hanging out with friends, or just listening to music!
This year, I have a lot of ideas and ambitions I will try to accomplish. I want to further interconnectivity between chapters across TNTSA and improve communication so that chapters are more equipped for conferences. I would also like to improve membership in TNTSA by focusing on outreach to regions across Tennessee. While I have a lot of goals, I am grateful for the opportunity to work on them. I can't wait to work with Team 45 and with all of you!
