Central Cabarrus High School and Mount Pleasant Middle School recently attended the annual Technology Student Association Western Region Conference at Appalachian State University. This was the third year that both Central Cabarrus High and Mount Pleasant Middle have had a TSA chapter and the third year the chapters have attended the conference. Technology Student Association (TSA) is one of seven Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) that enhances personal development, leadership, and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), whereby members apply and integrate these concepts through intracurricular activities, competitions, and related programs.
