Several Oswego County students recently reflected on educational and life lessons learned as they were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society.
All of the Center for Instruction, Technology & Innovation’s Career and Technical Education students achieved scholarly success and exhibited amiable character to meet membership eligibility requirements.
Each of the 143 first-year inductees and 27 second-year inductees demonstrated responsibility, service, leadership, skill, scholarship, honesty and citizenship, in addition to having met additional eligibility criteria, which include maintaining a 90 percent or higher average in their CTE class and maintaining good academic standing and attendance in their home district.
Mary Buske, a second-year NTHS inductee, described the fun she experienced in her Early Childhood Education studies and the confidence she gained to pursue an early childhood education degree upon high school graduation. Several other second-year inductees shared their CTE successes, which included lessons of poise and maturity.
CiTi District Superintendent Christopher Todd said CTE students arrive on campus with values; CiTi helps reinforce those values and student talents.
Marla Berlin, principal of Career and Technical Education at CiTi, congratulated all NTHS inductees on their achievements and commended CTE staff members for their hard work and dedication in helping students become college and career ready.
Following a candle lighting ceremony, award recipients received certificates, pins honor cords and medallions before they recited the NTHS pledge of membership.
