Dozens inducted into Capital Region BOCES National Technical Honor Society
COLONIE— Several Scotia-Glenville students were among the 51 Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School students who were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) this spring.
Those honored come from a cross section of Career and Technical Education programs, from welding, heating and criminal justice to the New Visions Health Careers and New Visions Law & Government.
To be honored, students had to meet several criteria, including earning grade point averages (GPA) of 92 or greater at Career & Tech and an overall GPA of 85 or greater at their high schools, as well as having five or fewer absences.
“I’m in awe of what you have accomplished,” Jeff Palmer, director of career and technical education for Capital Region BOCES, said. “You have proven that you have the right stuff, that you are the right workers employers are seeking.”
Here are the S-G students inducted into the NTHS and their Capital Region BOCES program:
