Penta Career Center students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during a ceremony on March 25, 2021. This year 11 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.
Students who were selected for induction into the 2021 NTHS at Penta include: Mackenzie Hoot (Anthony Wayne) from Digital Arts and Design; Carson Charville (Eastwood) from Information Technologies Academy; Abigail Lipinski (Eastwood) from Dental Assistant; Candace Lawson (Genoa) from Dental Assistant; Marissa Betz (North Baltimore) from Sophomore Exploratory; Hope Carico (North Baltimore) from Sophomore Exploratory; Alessia Garner (Oak Harbor) from Firefighter; Abigail Brown (Otsego) from Digital Arts & Design; Katlyn Floyd (Swanton) from Sophomore Exploratory; Anna Wellons (Woodmore) from Medical Technologies Academy; and Olivia Cook (Woodmore) from Cosmetology.
Each NTHS inductee received a membership certificate, pin, window decal, a seal for their high school diploma, NTHS spirit wear, and a white tassel to be worn during graduation. Senior inductees also receive cords that they will wear for graduation.
