Orleans and Niagara Career and Tech Ed Students Inducted into National Technical Honor Society

Congratulations to the students from the Orleans and Niagara Career and Technical Education Centers who were recently inducted into the National Technical Honor Society.  Out of all the high school students in the United States, the National Technical Honor Society students who receive this honor comprise 1.6 percent of that population.   For staff at the Orleans/BOCES center, they represent the four pillars of the National Technical Honor Society: scholarship, leadership, service and character. 


The students were honored in front of their teachers, families and school district representatives.  The students had to maintain an 89.5 grade average in their career and technical education programs and an 84.5 average at their high schools, have superior attendance, exemplary behavior, be a member in good standing with SkillsUSA and have a recommendation from a faculty member.
