While being retired since January, he was present to help oversee this year’s competition, and will be at the National Conference being held at the Gaylord in Grapevine this June.
In his acceptance speech, Caldwell spoke of how he had been influenced by the passion and desire of many people he has worked with in TSA.
He spoke of the rewards of being involved with, and seeing the growth of TSA students over the years. He talked of how the students he has worked with have taught him many things over the years.
Caldwell will still be involved, working to help further the education and growth of all he comes in contact with, retired or not.
