Senior earns National Technical Honor Society distinction
June 5, 2012
Watervliet High School senior Amelia Walker has been inducted into the Capital Region BOCES chapter of the National Technical Honor Society, a distinction that honors her achievements at both BOCES and her home district.
Walker, a Computer & Network Technician/IT student at BOCES, was among 38 local career and technical students inducted in the National Technical Honor Society last month. Walker also achieved National Technical Honor Society status last year.
To be inducted into the honor society, students must achieve a 92 percent or higher average at the Career and Tech Center and an 85 percent or higher overall average at their high schools. Students must also have five or fewer absences.
“Career and Technical School students are ready for college and career, and National Technical Honor Society students go above and beyond. We are proud of these students and all that they have achieved,” Capital Region BOCES District Superintendent Charles Dedrick said.
The Honor Society’s mission is to recognize student achievement and leadership, promote educational excellence and enhance career opportunities for career and technical students. Attributes of Honor Society members include skill, honesty, service, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, leadership and knowledge.
