Greetings NJ TSA! My name is Sreela Kodali, and it is my honor and privilege to serve as your TSA State President. I am a senior at High Technology High School, and this is my fourth year in TSA. I compete in the Engineering Design competition and was an Engineering Design finalist at nationals. TSA has taught me so much, and I can’t wait to share my experiences and love for technology with all of you. In addition to TSA, I am an Indian classical dancer, the president of my school’s student government, and the vice-president of my school robotics club. I served as your State Secretary last year and am excited for another successful year. As president, I will do everything I can to contribute to our chapter and support technology in NJ. I am looking forward to serving our organization and meeting everyone at this year’s state conference!
Vice President: Anthony Graybush
Hey NJ TSA! My name is Anthony Graybush and I am your 2013-2014 State Vice-President. I am currently a senior at Freehold Township High School, this is my seventh year in TSA, and my fifth year serving as a NJ-TSA State Officer.
