Copperas Cove students headed to national technology competition

COPPERAS COVE, TX (KXXV) -

Eight Copperas Cove High School students are headed to the national contest after sweeping the Texas Technology Student Association held in Waco.

Copperas Cove High School senior and president of the TSA student club, Mia Branch, is in her second year of technology classes with participation in the after-school organization.
