BKW high school students 'pay it forward'

Five students from BKW who are enrolled in courses offered through the Capital Region BOCES Career & Technical School were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society in late May.

These students were honored for excellences in their career and technical education courses and in their academic studies at Berne-Knox-Westerlo. All inductees achieved a 92 or higher average at Career & Tech, an 85 or higher overall average at BKW, plus had five or fewer absences.

Berne-Knox-Westerlo had the highest amount of inductees than any other Capital Region school this year.

All inductees of the National Technical Honor Society; among them are five from BKW.
