2017-2018 State Officer Team

The new 2017-2018 state officer team was instated following the national TSA conference.

 Zach Souders, President


Hello MDTSA! I ran to be our president this year because I wanted to give back to and improve the organization that has meant so much to me. Through my past years in TSA as both a competing member and state treasurer, I’ve been able to participate in many great experiences and meet a wonderful community of dedicated students that I never could have otherwise. This year as president, I have tried to ensure that the opportunity I had continues to be available to our members and is available to more students throughout Maryland.



 Hanna Porter, Vice-President


Hi, MDTSA! My name is Hanna Porter and I am excited to serve as MDTSA Vice President this year. TSA has been an important part of my life since I joined as a freshman at Glen Burnie High School and as a state officer, I intend to do anything I possibly can to improve this organization and to bring the experiences I have enjoyed through this organization to as many people as possible.



Nana Annan, Secretary


The two years I have been involved with TSA have been a very beneficial experience for me. My interest in technology and innovation have driven me to work hard as a member of the officer team for my local TSA chapter, and the privilege of helping to shape it has been extremely rewarding. Becoming the Secretary for the Maryland TSA enables me to help the development and progress of an organization that is very important to me. Good luck with your events and continue to pursue your technical interests.



 Akshay Shah, Treasurer


Hey MDTSA! Ever I since I joined TSA freshman yearm I have been gladly serving as your MDTSA Treasurer and been actively involved in TSA at the state and national level. Through my time in TSA I have built relationships and had great experience that I would not have had otherwise. As an aspiring entrepreneurial engineer, the technical and presentational skills I have learned through TSA have helped me in a way that school has not. Have a good time at the State Conference. 





Mehul Sachdev, Reporter

Hi Maryland TSA! My name is Mehul Sachdev and I am glad to serve as your Reporter.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in TSA, going to the State and National Conferences, as it has enabled me to bond with many interesting people I may not have met otherwise.  As an aspiring engineer, I believe TSA has been a great exposure to different areas in engineering that is difficult to come by in school. TSA has many opportunities, that no one should miss out on.




Mellie Zito, Sergeant at Arms


Hello TSA! This is my fourth year participating in this wonderful club. I’m glad to be spending my final year as your Sergeant at Arms. Taking on new challenges each year with interesting people is always a fun experience, one that is dear to my heart. TSA has always been an organization of members who support and inspire each other to learn new things and challenge themselves. I hope that we have a great year as we continue to grow together.
