My Town: Kent Career Tech Center names first National Tech Honor Society members

KENT COUNTY, Mich.—A dozen students from Kent Career Tech Center are now members of the National Technical Honor Society.

The students were inducted into the Tech Center’s inaugural NTHS class for demonstrating outstanding skills in their program and overall academic achievement.  The NTHS is similar to the National Honor Society, but with tougher requirements, including involvement in a career or technical education program, a 3.5 or higher GPA and community service hours.

 “These students have combined their academic excellence, community service, upstanding character and leadership experiences with a career preparation program. They are the epitome of what college and career ready looks like. NTHS is a way to recognize them for that,” says Tech Center Principal John Kraus. “Being accepted into this organization helps students showcase both their academic and technical achievement for colleges and employers. We hope this credential will open up even more opportunities for these outstanding students.”

This year’s inductees are:  Scott Hoek (Caledonia High School); Gloria Rubambiza (Comstock Park High School); Sophia Luettke (East Grand Rapids High School); India Dunning (Forest Hills Northern High School); Tyreece Talbert (Grand Rapids University Prep); Keegan Demaray (Grandville High School); Hasani Hayden (Kelloggsville High School); Matthew Bowman (Kent City High School); Paige Hale (Lowell High School); Jonathan Wyckoff (Lowell High School); Michael Blake (Lowell High School); and Gabrie Rowley (Sparta High School).

To mark their membership into the NTHS, each student will receive a certificate, diploma seal, graduation tassel and lapel pin.
