Tech program wins award
The American Cancer Society (ACS) gave Blaine high school’s Technology Student Association (TSA) chapter a platinum spirit of service award for their fundraising efforts for the ACS this past school year. Chapter adviser is Blaine technology teacher Jim Nelson.
The award was presented in July at the national TSA conference, held this time in Dallas, Texas. Over 4,200 students attended from 47 states and Germany.
Blaine students Tessa Freeman and Kevin Klemmt placed 10th in the national competition’s Film Technology division with their report on the impact of television on society.
Nelson’s son Brad, who graduated from Ferndale high school this past month, compete as a part of the Blaine TSA group since Ferndale does not sponsor a TSA chapter.
He earned third place in film technology for a video he made tracking the Ferndale high school football team’s winning of the AAA high school football championship last March at the Tacoma Dome.
