SCHNECKSVILLE, Pa. | Eleven students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society during a ceremony Thursday (Dec. 6, 2018) at Lehigh Career & Technical Institute.

Membership in the NTHS is highly competitive; students must maintain a grade average of 90 percent or better to be considered for induction. This year’s inductees were selected from a pool of 30 nominees. LCTI Director of Career & Technical Education Kurt Adam said the society’s newest members represent the best of the best at LCTI and their sending high schools.
“These students have the vision, leadership abilities and the drive to succeed,” Adam said. “These young men and women are the future health care providers, educators, business professionals, law enforcement officers, engineers, designers, industry leaders and, hopefully, they will be taking care of us as we get older.”
Northern Lehigh School District Superintendent Matthew Link delivered the evening’s keynote address. He praised the newest NTHS members for setting an example their peers can follow. “Thank you for being true leaders and reflecting so positively on all of your home districts,” he said.
Also Thursday, a member of LCTI’s Plumbing & Heating Occupational Advisory Council, Michael Gillette, of Michael Gillettee Plumbing, was inducted into the society, becoming an honorary member.
