UTC is proud to announce that the following students have achieved all the goals of the National Technical Honor Society.
In 1984 a group of educators and business people joined together to form the organization that was to become the National Technical Honor Society. Their vision was to lift up outstanding career and technical students, advance excellence in career and technical education, and raise the bar for student achievement. From that small beginning, the National Technical Honor Society has grown to become the acknowledged internationally by industry and education as the leader in the recognition of outstanding student achievement in career and technical education, with chapters in schools and colleges throughout all 50 states; the U.S. Territories of American Samoa, Guam, and Puerto Rico; and the Bahamas. Under the motto, "Excellence in America's Workforce Begins with Excellence in Workforce Education," the National Technical Honor Society continues to carry out its mission to lift up and publicly recognize men and women committed to excellence, values, citizenship, and achievement.
This year, in our quest to increase recognition for our most outstanding students, UTC decided to establish a chapter of National Technical Honor Society. We applied for, and were granted our charter earlier this month and tonight we are please to induct 6 students as Charter Members of the United Technologies Center Chapter of National Technical Honor Society.
To be eligible for membership, each student must be recommended by one or more faculty or staff. They must have a cumulative grade point average of 87 or higher in all classes throughout their high school education. They must have a minimum grade point average of 93 in their technical education classes. They must be honest, responsible student-citizens who are committed to personal and professional excellence as demonstrated by the highest standards of conduct, attendance, achievement, and community service. And they must have a definitive technical career goal.
