TSA Does Well At State Conference In Bakersfield

March 19 and 20, Our Diamond Bar High Technology Student Association (TSA) had a tremendous showing at the California TSA State Conference in Bakersfield.


TSA is one of the premier national CTSOs in the U.S. and boasts a membership of 230,000 middle and high school students and 4 million alumni that include Mark Zuckerberg and Carrie Underwood. We travelled with 77 students to CSUB where we competed in over 30 events. A number of our students were also elected to state office. And many won awards. Below is a breakdown of all that was accomplished this weekend.

Chapter Award – Sweepstakes (All around champions!)


TSA in California was founded by DBHS students and is currently managed by DBHS Alum Nicole Chen and former DBHS teacher (and Alum) Carly Gordon (Russo). Both worked tirelessly this weekend and in the months before to make sure our students had an incredible experience.

DBHS TSA is a student centered organization. The success of this group is due to the efforts of the students and the support of their parents, the administration and the staff here at Diamond Bar High School.
