Local inducted into honor society at Penta

Penta Career Center students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during a special ceremony on April 7 at Penta. This year 15 students were honored for their career-technical achievements.

Students selected for induction included Bethany Dieckhoner of Swanton, who is in the Medical Technologies Academy.

The NTHS is similar to the National Honor Society at comprehensive high schools where students are recognized for scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Membership in the NTHS at Penta requires students to maintain excellent attendance, good behavior and a 3.5 overall grade point average. In addition, inductees must meet the seven attributes of NTHS (skills, honesty, service, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, and leadership).

The NTHS has been in existence for students at Penta since 2013. It was established as an additional way to recognize student achievement and leadership.

“This is a great opportunity for Penta to honor our students,” says Missy Emerine, instructor of Your Exploratory Success 101 and one of the advisors for NTHS. “We are also pleased that students are still eligible to apply for membership in the National Honor Society at their member schools. The NTHS is just another way for students to be recognized at Penta for their career-technical achievements.”

Each NTHS inductee received a membership certificate, pin, window decal, a seal for their high school diploma, NTHS spirit wear, and a white tassel to be worn during graduation. Senior inductees also received a cord that they will wear for graduation.
