2009-10 Tech LeadersSummer TripsTech Leader Hall of Fame

The Technology Student Leaders (Tech Leaders) at Marshall play an important role in the successful Exploring Technology program at the school. The Tech Leaders are 8th grade students who serve as teacher assistants for each of the tech classes. To be considered as candidates for a Tech Leader position, interested 7th grade Tech students apply in March of each year.

Students must earn high grades in the Exploring Technology class, complete a written application and pass an oral interview. There is stiff competition for the available positions and because of this, some students who apply do not meet all the qualifications. Once the new Tech Leaders have been selected, an announcement is made prior to spring break and they begin their work at the start of the following school year.

Tech Leaders provide valuable service by assisting students, maintaining equipment and helping to run the Tech Lab. The Tech Leaders also have their own club where they sell soft drinks after school. The profits from the sales are used to purchase equipment for the Tech Lab and to help pay for themselves to go on various trips and activities.
For the 2009-2010 school year, the following students have been selected for Student Technology Leadership positions:
Joey Asaro
Collin Beaty
Darrian Borboa
Scott Cranny
Peter Haist
Troy Holsapple
Alex Johnson
