Bastian Selected as COTSA Advisor of the Year

Congratulations to Bobbie Bastian, the TSA Advisor at Bollman Technical Education Center, who was recently named Colorado TSA Advisor of the Year for 2017.

Mrs. Bastian was selected from a highly competitive field of advisors. Her nomination from student Benjamin Cleary said, “When it comes to TSA, Mrs. Bastian, TSA comes before sleep.  There have been many late nights that we have worked in her class room to finish our projects.  She never says no when we ask to work on our projects and makes sure all students have the resources to get to where they need to be and to complete their projects.  She is always there for us.”

Mrs. Bastian has been a TSA advisor since 2012 and has been involved in a number professional development activities for her peers including teaching classes at the United States Air Force Academy through the Challenger Learning Center.

Additionally, Mrs. Bastian volunteers her time at numerous events for the Adams 12 Five Star School District, and has “done everything in her power” to provide her students the opportunity to experience the state and national conferences for TSA, even to the point of participating in fundraisers. “When had our cash wash fundraiser,” said Cleary, “she was right alongside us washing every car that day.  She also has taught us to be grateful for the contributions given to us.”

In addition to receiving her award at the state conference, Mrs. Bastian will be recognized at the TSA National Conference in Orlando, FL, in June 2017.
