NTHS students usually have a ceremony for their induction, but due to COVID restrictions, they were given their induction certificates as part of their Awards Day ceremonies, which celebrate students’ completion of FEH BOCES programs. AEC hosted Awards Day ceremonies on June 14 and 15.
Inductees were given a purple honor stole to wear during graduation at their home school.
In order to be inducted into the NTHS, students had to have an 90% or better average for the last 6 quarters, exhibit quality attendance, and receive a teacher recommendation.
“It says a lot about a student to excel in a year when so much is a challenge. I’m incredibly proud of each National Technical Honor Society inductee for their persistence, intelligence and courage,” said AEC Principal Rick Swanston.
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.
FEH BOCES’ other school, North Franklin Educational Center in Malone, inducted NTHS members in April.
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.
