NCSSSMST Journal, v12 n2 p12-13 Spr 2007
The author remembers back to freshmen year when NCSSSMST was considered a jumbled acronym and a pain to utter. But now, two years down the line, and their conference debut in only a few months, she remembers the NCSSSMST motto, "foster, support, and advance the creative efforts of those specialized schools whose primary purpose is to attract academically prepared students for leadership in mathematics, science, and technology" while preparing their conference. On October 18, 19, and 20, 2007, Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST) will hold a student conference attracting approximately 350 students from member schools of the National Consortium of Specialized Secondary Schools of Math, Science, and Technology. This conference will advance student interest in math, science, and technology by bridging the gap with public policy. 2007 marks an important year in Virginia history and because of that, they name their conference--2007: Yesterday Never Dies, blending espionage and history into an interactive three day session. This conference is produced by the dedication of 30-some TJHSST students with the guidance of staff and administration, and with Montgomery Blair High School and sponsorship from GMU. This conference will be the culmination of over four years of hard work, cooperation, and dedication. (contains 27 endnotes.)
