      The NTHS has been in existence for students at Penta since 2013.  It was established as an additional way to recognize student achievement and leadership.  Students who are members of the NTHS at Penta are also eligible for induction into the National Honor Society at their member school.
      Students who were selected for induction into the 2019 NTHS at Penta include:
