National Technical Honor Society inducts Career and Technical Education students

Students recognized for excellence in Career and Technical Education

The National Technical Honor Society chapter at Southern Westchester BOCES’ Center for Career Services inducted 43 new members during a ceremony on the Valhalla campus. The students stood before their peers and family as they were honored and recognized for their achievements in CTE.

“The NTHS believes in empowering each of our students in their journey to develop the skills they will need to build a career they will love,” said Student Counselor Anna Macchia. “NTHS also seeks to reward excellence in workforce education, develop self-esteem and pride, and encourage students to reach for higher levels of achievement.” 

Since it was founded in 1984, the NTHS has had more than 1 million students become members. Currently, it serves more than 100,000 active members annually in both secondary and postsecondary chapters across the country. 

The NTHS Core 4 Objectives serve as guiding principles that direct the activities and growth of local chapters. They include Career Development, Leadership, Service, and Recognition opportunities. These objectives provide the foundation of the NTHS community, fostering growth, leadership, service, and recognition among its members.

“Being inducted into the National Technical Honor Society is an incredible honor and a significant milestone in my culinary arts journey. It feels amazing to have my hard work and dedication recognized on such a prestigious platform,” said Sarah Lee, a senior at Edgemont High School who is in the Culinary Arts program. “Right now, it motivates me to continue striving for excellence and reinforces my passion for the culinary arts. Looking to the future, this recognition will serve as a constant reminder of my commitment to my craft and inspire me to achieve even greater heights in my culinary career.”

NTHS also provides approximately $300,000 in scholarships annually and strives to help connect education and industry to build a highly skilled workforce.
