Students Inducted into National Technical Honor Society
Twenty-seven students were inducted into the Gaston College chapter of the National Technical Honor Society at a ceremony on November 14, 2022. The society honors, recognizes, and empowers students in Career and Technical Education, and the Fall 2022 cohort includes students in the following programs:
- Accounting and Finance
- Human Services
- Information Technology
- Medical Assisting
- Medical Office Administration—Billing & Coding
- Paralegal Technology
Excellence in a CTE program and a minimum GPA of 3.0 are required for membership in the Honor Society, which awards close to $300,000 in scholarships each year. The NTHS is dedicated to rewarding excellence in workforce education and it strives to help connect education and industry to build a highly skilled workforce.
Over 100 friends and family members of the students, along with Gaston College faculty and staff, attended the ceremony. “Induction into the National Technical Honor Society is one of the highest accomplishments that can be bestowed upon a Career and Technical Education student,” said Lisa Albright-Jurs, Dean of CTE. “Tonight, we recognize the accomplishments of a group of outstanding students who have put forth tremendous effort and shown great aptitude in their chosen trade area.”
There will be another opportunity for membership in the NTHS in the Spring 2023 semester. Interested students can contact Lisa Albright-Jurs at firstname.lastname@example.org or Melody Gibson at email@example.com.
