The Seneca Highlands Career and Technical Center inducted eighteen new members into the National Technical Honor Society
The Seneca Highlands Career and Technical Center inducted eighteen new members into the National Technical Honor Society at a ceremony held on Thursday, April 27, at 1:00 pm. The NTHS is an educational non-profit that exists to honor, recognize, and empower students in Career and Technical Education. The welcome and qualifications were given by James Young, Director of the Seneca Highlands Career and Technical Center. The guest speaker was Mrs. Sharon Horvath, Vice-President of the Port Allegany Women’s Club, and co-owner of The Inn on Maple Street in Port Allegany. The Co-Advisors of the NTHS are Mrs. Risha Johnson, Special Education Facilitator/Co-op Coordinator and Mrs. Kimberly Mooney, Early Childhood Education Program Teacher.
To be considered a candidate for the Honor Society, students at the Seneca Highlands CTC must be in the 11th or 12th grade, have not less than a 93% average in the first three marking periods in their program of study. Students must also maintain a 3.0 GPA at their sending schools and be approved by their instructor, sending district principal, and CTC Director. Finally, there is a committee that reviews the qualifications of all applicants.
Students must maintain the standards of scholastic achievement, skill development, good character, leadership, honesty, and responsibility to be considered for membership in the Honor Society. The Seneca Highlands Career and Technical Center is committed to recognizing students who have shown excellence in both academic and technical subjects.
Returning members lit candles to represent the seven attributes of NTHS, and then the induction of candidates with the presentation of Honor Cords took place. Refreshments were created and served by the Culinary Arts Program under the direction of Chef Paul Farmelo.
