Long Drain Middle and Hundred High schools made their presence known at the state level recently as several of the schools’ TSA members nabbed first-place honors at the West Virginia State TSA Championship, with HHS receiving the title of WV State TSA Champions. Furthermore, Hundred High School’s Rex Rush received the title of “WV TSA Advisor of the Year,” and HHS won First Place for Outstanding Chapter.

Notably, HHS’ Jocelyn Prado was TSA State President for 2018-2019.

“I’m extremely proud of all of our students that competed at the State TSA Conference,” stated Rush. “All students worked extremely hard on their projects and as a chapter won the state TSA championship.”

Rush explained he and fellow HHS TSA advisors Sean Snedden and Jeremy Kelch would like to dedicate HHS’ State TSA Championship to former TSA advisor and technical education teacher Loy Stull.

“Mr. Stull passed away over 10 years ago… Myself, Sean Snedden, and Jeremy Kelch all had him for class and as a TSA advisor. Without him teaching us the skills that we possess now, we wouldn’t be able to pass it on to our students.”

This photo, from an older yearbook, shows Mr. Loy Stull and a group of TSA students. Stull was TSA advisor of Rush, Jeremy Kelch, and Sean Snedden — all of whom are TSA advisors at Hundred High School today.

“I would just say that I am extremely proud of our kids’ success,” noted Long Drain School’s TSA advisor, Lisa Kelch, of her students’ achievements.

Our students put in hours and hours of time outside of school working on their projects, and they were able to see what they can achieve with hard work and dedication. They have taken pride in their work and have a sense of accomplishment. The community has rallied around them and their success as well, which has been a lot of fun to watch.

“I love that we can offer TSA to our students because provides them with opportunities to not only learn and engage in projects related to STEM, but gives them writing, interviewing, networking, and leadership experience – which will benefit them no matter what career path they choose to take one day.”
