2019-2020 State Officers

President: Regan Riehl

My name is Regan Riehl, and I am your New Jersey TSA President. I am currently a senior at Colts Neck High School and this is my seventh year in TSA. I have attended six state and national conferences, where I have placed in events including Essays on Technology, Debating Technological Issues, and Prepared Presentation. I have also been a part of my chapter’s TEAMS and VEX robotics teams.  I am a member of the Technology Honors Society and a recipient of the Gold Award. In previous years, I have served as the New Jersey TSA State Secretary and Parliamentarian. I have also served as my chapter’s President, Secretary, Parliamentarian and Treasurer. TSA has been played a pivotal role in my life, and I am thankful to be able to continue my journey with such a phenomenal association with an incredible membership. Outside of TSA, I am enrolled in my high school’s Law and Public Service Learning Center. In my spare time, I am an active member in my school’s drama club, Junior Statesman Alliance, forensics club, and Red Cross Club. I also love to perform in community theater. I am certain that, together, we can “inspire a shared vision” for another successful year in TSA.

 

 Vice-President: Kate Donnelly

Hi New Jersey TSA! I am Kate Donnelly and I am you 2019-2020 NJ State Vice President. I am currently a senior at the Marine Academy of Science and Technology on Sandy Hook. This will be my third year in TSA and I am excited to be your State Vice President and for the year ahead of us. Last year, I was honored to be your NJ TSA State Treasurer. In the past two years, I have attended TSA nationals where I competed in Fashion Design and Technology. Outside of TSA, I have danced for 13 years and love to swim and run. I have also received my Gold Award and am actively involved in my school’s ROTC program. I am so excited to be on the officer team this year and have a good year!

Secretary: Khushi Sabuwala

Hi New Jersey TSA! My name is Khushi Sabuwala and I am your 2019-2020 State Secretary. I am currently a junior at High Technology High School and this is my sixth year in TSA. Since 6th grade I have attended the state conference every year and three national conferences. I have competed and placed in a multitude of events at both levels. Some of my favorite events include Chapter Team, Dragster, and Animatronics. I have also participated in my chapter’s TEAMS team and am a member of TSA’s Technology Honor Society. In my previous years of being a part of TSA, I have served as NJ TSA’s Sergeant-at-Arms in addition to my chapter’s President and Parliamentarian. Outside of TSA, I have pursued Indian classical dancing for over 10 years and have begun teaching last year. In addition to this I enjoy playing the trumpet and this is my second year as my school’s jazz band director. Additionally, in my free time, I enjoy watching football. TSA has greatly impacted my life and contributed in shaping my goals for the future. Going into TSA, I had no idea that this organization would foster not only an interest in pursuing a field in STEM as a career, but also develop crucial leadership and communication skills. I am looking forward to another rewarding year in TSA and hope that I can make it a great one for all of us!

Treasurer: Ben Schornstein

Hello New Jersey TSA! My name is Benjamin Schornstein, and I am a senior at Freehold Township High School. I am your 2019-2020 State Treasurer, and this is my fourth year in the organization. Over the years in TSA, I have attended the state and national competitions for multiple events, such as Software Development, Video Game Design, Digital Media Production, and VEX Robotics. Outside of TSA, I founded a club called STEM for Students to ensure students to find their passion in STEM on a non-competitive level. I am also involved in DECA, Mu Alpha Theta, Film Club, Science League, and United Synagogue Youth. TSA has changed who I am today because I had the opportunity to work with my friends on amazing projects and I have gained a greater appreciation and passion for the STEM field. I am looking forward to another great year in NJ TSA!
