TR Fastenings Inc lends its support to young technology students in Texas

TR Fastenings Inc, the US business of global fastenings manufacturer and distributor TR Fastenings (TR), is supporting a team of technology students in Texas which has qualified for a prestigious national competition. The pupils from Cypress Ranch High School in Houston are taking part in the National Technology Student Association (TSA) competition which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, from 22-26 June.

The TSA programme, which is only two years old, teaches participants important skills in the design, development, manufacture and economics of various technology projects, and pitches their work against other CFISD schools at State, regional and national levels.

The students at Cypress Ranch have seen great success, with 24 students qualifying for the State Competition in Fort Worth, at which they won 25 awards. Three pupils also went on to qualify for the National competition, securing the support of TR and other businesses to fund their travel, accommodation and resources for the trip.

Joe Haymes, Strategic Sales Manager at TR Fastenings Inc, which is based in Houston, Texas, managed the donation effort, stating:

“As a business, TR Fastenings Inc is fully committed to identifying and nurturing technology and engineering talent from a young age. We are proud to put our support fully behind these exceptional Texan students as they travel to Atlanta. We wish them all the very best for the competition and look forward to witnessing their progression in their chosen fields in the years to come.”
