99 seniors join National Technical Honor Society


VERONA — Madison-Oneida BOCES inducted 99 members of the Class of 2022 into its chapter of the National Technical Honor Society this spring. The inductees represent 11 school districts and 17 Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs.

NTHS is an honor society recognizing excellence in career and technical education. To join the honor society, students must maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average in both CTE and their high school, demonstrate excellence in their CTE program, participate in extracurricular activities at BOCES and/or their home school, demonstrate outstanding character, and carry the endorsement of their CTE teacher.

NTHS membership is a distinction achieved by only 3% to 4% of CTE students nationwide, according to the announcement by MOBOCES.

In lieu of an in-person ceremony this year, NTHS chapter adviser Rachel Helmer created an online presentation of the students. Inducted students received honor cords, tassels and pins to wear during their high school graduation and a special seal on their diplomas.
