An educational highlight each spring is the annual induction ceremony into the National Honor Society. Although each high school in Vermont has their own chapter of NHS, an occasionally overlooked fact is that technical centers such as The Center for Technology, Essex, also have their own chapters of the National Technical Honor Society. BFA Fairfax is extremely proud of nine of our students who were recently inducted, or maintained their recognition, into the CTE chapter of the National Technical Honor Society on March 26.
As stated on the CTE website “students recognized as NTHS members are those who have excelled in both their technical area and their required academics. In order to be nominated, students must earn a 92 or better as a semester average and each quarter grade must be at least a 90 or above. In addition, they must have excellent worker traits within their technical program and earn the recommendation of their program instructor(s). Any academic classes taken within the technical center must have a grade average of a B- or better and their attendance in the program cannot exceed 4 absences for the semester.”
In order to be considered, students are also required to complete an application process, including an essay describing their community service contributions, which are a valuable component of selection and membership.
BFA Fairfax is extremely proud of the accomplishments of our technical center students. Whether in the Computer Systems Technology, Pro Foods, Natural Resources, Dental Assisting, Automotive, or Design and Creative Media programs, we look forward to their continued success, and the opportunity to recognize them individually at BFA Fairfax commencement in June.
