LISD TECH Center Students Inducted into National Technical Honor Society

On Thursday, April 6th, 82 local high school students were inducted into the LISD TECH Center chapter of the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during an evening ceremony. NTHS is an honor society that celebrates and empowers outstanding career and technical education (CTE) students through recognition, networking, and scholarship opportunities.

“This was a fantastic evening celebrating the success of our top students,” said Jake Graf, LISD TECH Center Assistant Principal. “These students have excelled in academics, technical skills, leadership, and service. They have a bright future ahead in their respective career pathways.”

To be eligible, students must meet rigorous standards at both the LISD TECH Center and their home school district. This includes maintaining a 3.5 GPA at the LISD TECH Center and a 3.25 GPA at their local district, having a good attendance record, participating in a career-centered student organization, being in good standing, and volunteering in the community.

“I am very honored to be inducted [into NTHS] and know it will help when I apply for college,” said Veronica Flores, Madison High School junior and Health Care Careers student. “My program at the LISD TECH Center has introduced me to different careers in the hospital setting through clinical experience opportunities and has guided me on what I want to do in the workforce.”

“I have been working hard in school, so it means a lot to receive this recognition,” said Caitlin Tessier, Onsted High School junior and Education Careers student. “My LISD TECH Center experience has made me really excited to become a teacher.” Tessier plans to earn her teaching degree in elementary education.

LISD TECH Center students collaborated to support the NTHS ceremony. Current NTHS members helped with the induction, and Horticulture students provided flowers for inductees.
