NTHS inducts 11 new members • The Georgia Virtue
The Ogeechee Technical College (OTC) National Technical Honor Society recently held its annual Spring Induction Ceremony in the College’s Joseph E. Kennedy Auditorium. Eleven new members who achieved and maintained at least a 3.5 GPA and who received recommendations from their instructors were inducted into the organization and received their official NTHS portfolios.
Club advisor Lisa Lanier introduced the new officers and began the candle ceremony to symbolize the seven attributes of the NTHS: competence, responsibility, honesty, scholarship, leadership, service and citizenship.
“This semester, our NTHS members co-hosted an OTC Blood Drive that collected over 20 units and will be sponsoring an Ice Cream Social for their classmates during the finals,” Lanier said. “Not only do our students excel in the classroom, but they are also motivated to give back to their community. »
The National Technical Honor Society is dedicated to recognizing excellence in vocational and technical education. Its mission is to honor student achievement and leadership, promote excellence in education, award scholarships, and enhance career opportunities. Students inducted into the NTHS must have completed 20 or more semester hours and maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher in addition to other criteria.
To date, NTHS has awarded nearly $3 million in scholarships through its own Jon H. Poteat Fellowship, through partnered career technology student organizations, and through an incredibly generous alumni association.
