VAN WERT — Eighteen outstanding Vantage seniors were recently selected as members of the Vantage chapter of the National Technical Honor Society. They were introduced and inducted at the annual NTHS banquet on Dec. 10 held in the Commons Area. In addition to the guests of honor, parents, home school principals and counselors and Vantage teachers and administrators attended the banquet to recognize this elite group of students.

The main purpose of the society is to reward scholastic achievement in career technical education. Membership encourages skill development, honesty, service, leadership, citizenship and individual responsibility. In addition, students are selected for membership in NTHS as a reward for excellence in workforce education; to develop self-esteem, pride and encourage students to reach for higher levels of achievement; and to promote business and industry’s critical workplace values - honesty, responsibility, initiative, teamwork, productivity, leadership and citizenship.

NTHS membership is the highest award for excellence in career technical education and is a reliable indicator of performance and leadership in the workplace. Students who achieved a 3.5 grade point average or better, while maintaining a 95-percent attendance rate at Vantage, were eligible to apply for membership. In addition to submitting a resume and writing an essay stating why they would like to be a part of the NTHS, the students also were required to obtain three teacher recommendations.
