Students were inducted in a ceremony on Tuesday morning at NFEC. After COVID restrictions canceled the ceremony entirely in 2020 and kept parents from attending last year, it was extra meaningful to have both students and their families on site for the ceremony this year.
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.
“I think it’s important to recognize that as you sit here bound to the same requirements as all National Technical Honor Society inductees that have come before you, that you have had a different experience. The COVID-19 pandemic presented challenges that you met with flexibility, focus, and determination – all of which are attributes that you should bring with you into the next chapter of your lives,” NFEC Executive Principal Shawn McMahon told students at the ceremony.
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 seventh year the North Franklin Education Center has participated in National Technical Honor Society.
Adirondack Educational Center’s NTHS inductees will be honored at a ceremony in May.
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.
