Posted On: Wednesday, August 17, 2022

Woodstock HS National TSA 8 17 22

A Cherokee County School District high school senior has placed in a national career skills competition!

Woodstock High School senior Madeline Ambery earned fifth place in the U.S. Technology Student Association (TSA) national competition held this summer in Texas.  She earned the national honor in the communications technology – children’s stories category, which followed her first place Georgia TSA statewide competition win in the same category.

Her entry for the competition was a children’s book with a STEM focus titled “The Adventures of Hopper and the Evil Space Cat,” which she wrote, illustrated and produced.    

Madeline is a third-year graphic design student in Woodstock High’s Career Pathway graphic design program led by teacher Isobel Mason.  This school year, Madeline is completing an internship in graphic design and plans to continue her studies in college to pursue a career in the field.  

“Congratulations to Madeline on this impressive honor recognizing her skill and dedication to graphic design,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower, who with the Cherokee County School Board recognized Madeline and CCSD’s other state TSA competition winners at a recent School Board meeting.  “Career education is an important part of the curriculum at all of our high schools, with 38 different Career Pathways offered.  We’re grateful to our dedicated teachers like Ms. Mason, who has guided her graphic design students to first-place state wins in career skills competitions for the past two years.”
