Adam Bobak - I am a junior attending Sussex Central High School and I hope to serve as your State Officer in the 2018-2019 academic year.

I am in the IB Diploma Programme and am an avid member of Math League, National Honor Society, Student Council, and my school's robotics club in addition to the TSA. As a fellow member of the TSA, I understand the chaotic circumstances that burden our local chapters.
