Congratulations to Penta's 2017 National Technical Honor Society Members
Penta Career Center students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during a special ceremony on March 23, 2017 at Penta. This year 19 students were honored for their career-technical achievements.
The NTHS is similar to the National Honor Society at comprehensive high schools where students are recognized for scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Membership in the NTHS at Penta requires students to maintain excellent attendance, good behavior and a 3.5 overall grade point average. In addition, inductees must meet the seven attributes of NTHS (skills, honesty, service, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, and leadership).
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.
“This is a great opportunity for Penta to honor our students,” says Missy Emerine, instructor of Your Exploratory Success 101 and one of the advisors for NTHS. “We are also pleased that students are still eligible to apply for membership in the National Honor Society at their member schools. The NTHS is just another way for students to be recognized at Penta for their career-technical achievements.”

Alyssa Baldwin (Bowling Green), Small Animal Care; Abigail Bigelow (Genoa), Early Childhood Education; Isiah Harrison (Bowling Green), Marketing; Melissa Huff (Perrysburg), Cosmetology;
