Students Inducted into the National Technical Honor Society
Penta Career Center students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during a special ceremony on March 28, 2019 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. Students who are members of the NTHS at Penta are also eligible for induction into the National Honor Society at their member school.

Both Klinger and Banks were inducted into the NTHS in 2018.
