Four BKW High School students were among a total of 45 enrolled in courses offered through the Capital Region BOCES Career & Technical School to be inducted into the National Technical Honor Society this year.
To be inducted, the students achieved a 92 or higher average at Career & Tech and an 85 or higher overall average at BKW, all with having five or fewer absences. This year’s BKW inductees were Allison Haller (Floral Design I), Samantha Flavell (Cosmetology I), Jessica Rue (Criminal Justice I) and Rhianon Sherry (Hospitality & Culinary Arts Tech II).
"You all have worked diligently to be inducted into the National Technical Honor Society. I admire your passion," said Career and Technical School Director Terry Swett at the May 20 induction ceremony.
Capital Region BOCES District Superintendent Charles Dedrick said, “I congratulate you, your parents for their support, and the wonderful staff at CTE. Career and Technical School students are ready for college and career, and National Technical Honor Society students go above and beyond. We are proud of these students and all that they have achieved.”
The National Technical Honor Society recognizes outstanding achievement at both the Capital Region Career & Technical School, where most students spend half their school day, and a student’s home high school. The Honor Society’s mission is to recognize student achievement and leadership, promote educational excellence and enhance career opportunities for career and technical students. Attributes of Honor Society members include skill, honesty, service, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, leadership and knowledge.
