As the 2019-2020 school year approaches, there has been a call for new officers in the vast CTSOs in the Newton College and Career Academy. Students of the STEM Institute have been chosen to represent various organizations, including TSA, Technology Student Association, and HOSA, Health Occupations Students of America. With elections having been April 23, the entire officer team for next school year is comprised of STEM associates. This includes, Jeffrey Lowe as president, Russell Danilchuk as vice president, Abigail Sugg as secretary, Austin Mock as Sergeant at arms , Christian Nipper as reporter, and Natalie Hanson as treasurer.
Through tough, competitive interviews and elections these new officer teams are ready to bring some changes.
