Florida TSA State Officers
President - Sarah Belli
Sarah Belli is a senior at Sarasota High School and couldn’t be more excited to be serving as your 2020-2021 FLTSA State President. This past year, she served as the State Secretary and previously as the State Sergeant-at-Arms. TSA has been a part of her life since she became a member in 6th grade, and she wouldn’t be the person she is today without it. Apart from this organization, Sarah is a competitive dancer who enjoys competing and attending conventions with her team. She is also invested in several clubs at her school including Sailor Baywatch, which partners with a larger organization in her community focused on cleaning up the local bay area. The experiences, friends, and memories Sarah has made through TSA are truly unforgettable, and when everything is put into perspective, the impact TSA has made on her is genuinely larger than life.
Vice President - Erica Schmitt
Erica Schmitt is a senior at North Port High School and could not be more delighted to serve as the 2020-2021 Florida TSA State Vice President. She began her experience in TSA her sophomore year and served as her chapter secretary this past year. Her passion for TSA grew once she saw the opportunities that were brought to her not only in the competitions she liked, such as debate, but also from the people she has met along the way. Beyond her commitment to TSA, Erica also plays Varsity Basketball and won the District final with her team in February of 2020. She also invests her time in several clubs at her school, including Student Government, where she is on the executive board as well as being the vice president of her district with FASC. The overall skills she has developed from her passion for leadership, especially from TSA are why she is here and prepared to serve as the State Vice President. Erica thanks TSA for all that it has given her, including new friends, competitive experiences, and life skills.
Secretary - Aidan O’Horan
Aidan O’Horan is a 6th year TSA member, and a senior in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program at Riverview High School. Throughout his time in TSA, Aidan has competed in a myriad of different competitions, generally at minimum five per year, though his favorites include Techbowl, Video Game Design, Forensics, and of course, Chapter Team. Aidan has held multiple office positions in the past and wanted to further his dedication and assistance to this association by serving as Florida State Secretary. TSA has provided Aidan with not only incredible life experiences, but also his two closest friends, and because of that, he feels he is forever indebted to the organization. Outside of TSA, Aidan prides himself in his talent and dedication as a musician, which he hopes to make a future career in. He plays multiple instruments, primarily the double bass with his school’s orchestra, which he also composes and conducts classical pieces for. Throughout his term as Florida State Secretary, Aidan hopes to provide the delegation with the same thing that it provided him: memories that they will forever look back upon with bliss, and friends that will last a lifetime.
