2024 National Technical Honor Society
2024 National Technical Honor Society
     Congratulations to our Penta Career Center students who were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during a special ceremony on April 4, 2024.  This year 43 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 four core objectives of NTHS (career development, leadership, service, and recognition opportunities).       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.
    See below for the list of students who were newly inducted into the NTHS.
