Tony will serve a three year term representing and being a voice for the youth and adult members of the NDSC across the Nation. He is honored to be serving in this way.

If you have ever met Tony, you will know that his favorite part of the Convention was meeting and being with all the people he met and visited with. There were three thousand attending and Tony now has about that many new friends!
