TSPRA members shine at NSPRA's 2013 Annual Conference
The 2013 NSPRA National Seminar may have been held in Southern California, but that didn't keep the event from having a helping heaping of Texas flavor.
More than 40 TSPRA members made the trip to California to network with, learn from, and provide help to their peers across the nation. Texas has the most NSPRA members of any state, with 139. Julie Zwahr of Little Elm ISD, is the NSPRA South Central Region Vice President, the largest NSPRA region.
Nine TSPRA members gave presentations at the conference, including Denise Cantu, Tim Carroll, Cody Cunningham, Larry Goddard, Emily Grobe, Louise Henry, Steve Knagg, Tamerah Ringo and Julie Zwahr.
