Students were inducted in a ceremony Tuesday morning at NFEC. Due to COVID restrictions, family members weren’t able to attend, but we livestreamed the event on our Facebook page, facebook.com/FFEHBOCES. Anyone interested can watch the recording on the page.
In order to be inducted, students had to have an 90% or better average for the last 6 quarters, exhibit quality attendance, and receive a teacher recommendation.
“Your teacher recommended you not only because you are a leader in the field, but because you are safety conscious, you follow direction, you exhibit collaborative skills, you have a positive attitude, you take pride in your work, you are dependable, and you take initiative,” NFEC Executive Principal Shawn McMahon told students at the ceremony. “Becoming a member of the National Technical Honor Society is a wise investment in your future. Having NTHS listed on your resume is a tangible sign of your academic success. Being a member of the National Technical Honor Society also tells a potential employer that there is more to you than what is simply listed on paper. Membership means that in the highly competitive world of CTE, you have risen to the top.”
The National Technical Honor Society is an educational nonprofit that exists to honor, recognize and empower students and teachers in Career & Technical Education. As the honor society for Career & Technical Education, NTHS serves over 100,000 active members annually in both secondary and postsecondary chapters across the country.
This is the 6th year the North Franklin Education Center has participated in National Technical Honor Society.
The ceremony at Adirondack Educational Center, FEH BOCES' school in Saranac Lake, was canceled due to COVID. Students who will be inducted into NTHS there will be honored at their awards day ceremonies in mid-June.
Franklin-Essex-Hamilton BOCES offers 11 two-year Career and Technical Education for 11th and 12th graders, plus four New Vision CTE programs just for high school seniors.
