July 9, 2024-- From June 26 to 30, Dante Kanterezhi-Gatto, Noah Eichert, and Alexandra Kanterezhi-Gatto represented Toms River at the National TSA Conference in Orlando, Florida.

The students were accompanied by parent advisors Jeannie Kanterezhi, Gabrielle Gatto, and Heidi Eichert, and were among the four total students representing Ocean County at the prestigious event. There, they enjoyed competing in STEM-integrated competitions, networking with students from across the country (39 states were in attendance) and meeting fellow TSA members from around the world including America Samoa, Germany, South Korea, and Turkey.

Following their success at the state TSA competition back in April, the students represented Toms River well once again on the national stage. Dante Kanterezhi-Gatto placed fifth in one of his five competitions, Future Technology & Engineering Teacher. He became the first New Jersey student to earn this achievement at the national conference in the last five years, and he also earned the gold achievement award.

Congratulations to Toms River's three national TSA competitors!
