On Wed., Jan, 15, student representatives traveled to Topeka for CTSO Citizenship day. CTSO stands for Career and Technical Student Organizations and of ones found at LHS includes TSA (Technology Students Association), DECA and FFA among others.

The two students representing Louisburg at Citizenship Day were Matthew Parodi and Kelly Stone, juniors. They serve as the State President and Vice President of TSA respectively. They both found the experience to be helpful and beneficial for all groups involved.

“[CTSO Citizenship day] is a great chance to show the people that support CTE (Career and Technical Education) why it is important to students all across the state of Kansas,” Parodi said.

As the President of TSA, Parodi was given the chance to speak before the Kansas Board of Education and the heads of all other CTSOs.

“[It] gives the students of CTSOs a chance to tell the board how their program has impacted their lives because, ultimately, it affects us the most,” Parodi said.

“I really enjoyed going [to CTSO Citizenship Day] because it was interesting to see what other students are doing for their organizations,” Stone said.

Overall, students partaking in TSA, FFA or any other CTSO should feel fortunate that their groups were so well represented.
