Though Hewett has only been a member for one year, he claims that TSA reigns over the other clubs, not only due to its variety of applicable competitions, but also because of the eclectic, intelligent student body. Though far from a veteran member, he aims to help improve the TSA experience all while continuing expanding his STEM knowledge.
