Ten seniors from Clarence High School were recently inducted into the National Technical Honor Society during a ceremony held March 12 in the auditorium at Maryvale High School in Cheektowaga.

The ceremony celebrated the academic accomplishments of students from Erie 1 BOCES’ three career and technical centers: Harkness, Kenton and Potter. The Clarence students were part of nearly 145 high school students representing 21 school districts from across the region at the induction ceremony.

Cheryl Winstel, associate in trade and technical education for the NYS Education Department, was the evening’s keynote speaker. Following a presentation of certificates, the student took the NTHS pledge of excellence.

Clarence inductees were: Monica Bates, Shauna Beauchamp, Nicole Brendel, Tyler Evans, Anna Lampke, Brian McCadden, Matthew Sawyer, Justin Schuessler, Bradley Wesolowski, and Caroline Woodward. They represented Erie 1 BOCES programs such as Spa Specialty, Auto Collision Repair, Television & Sound Production, and Fashion Design & Merchandising.

The mission of the NTHS is to honor student achievement and leadership, promote educational excellence, and enhance career opportunities for its NTHS membership. To be eligible, a student must be nominated by a teacher, have at least a 90 GPA in the nominating course, an overall GPA of 85, and be active in a career and technical organization.

As part of public education, BOCES offers a variety of career and technical programs during the normal school day to high school students in Erie County. High school students interested in learning more about how they can participate in various programs such as Web and gaming technologies, nursing or aviation technology should visit www.e1b.org or speak with their high school counselor.
