Congratulations were extended to 25 students from the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center who were recently inducted into the National Technical Honor Society. Out of all the high school students in the United States, the National Technical Honor Society students who receive this honor comprise 1.6 percent of that population. For staff at the Orleans/Niagara BOCES Center, they represent the four pillars of the National Technical Honor Society: scholarship, leadership, service and character.
The students were honored at the Orleans/Niagara BOCES' technical education center in front of their teachers, families and school district representatives. The students had to maintain an 89.5 average in their career and technical education programs and an 84.5 average at their high schools, have superior attendance, exemplary behavior, be a member in good standing with SkillsUSA and have a recommendation from a faculty member.
