When awarded this recognition, Steven commented, “What I really like about TSOA is that it opens up your mind to see things, betters your people skills meeting new people across the US, but the most fun part is traveling and getting the opportunity to see family in different states. There’s much more I could say! Let’s go TSOA and make 2022 a strong year!”
