This year, there were 83 second-year members and 307 first-year members honored from Clear Brook, Clear Creek, Clear Falls, Clear Lake, Clear Springs and Clear View high schools.
“CTE, in essence, reflects the modern workplace,” said CCISD Director of CTE Dana Morgan. “Clear Creek ISD’s program provides students with a foundation for career success by integrating rigorous academic content with job-specific technical skills and hands-on learning and problem solving.”
Established in 1984, NTHS rewards student excellence in technical education, develops self-esteem, encourages students to reach for higher levels of achievement and promotes career-based values.
“These courses make learning relevant by preparing students for a wide range of careers such as health care and medical science, business and marketing, hospitality, engineering, metal manufacturing, construction technology, automotive technology, computer science and information technology – only to name a few,” Morgan said. “Most of these students graduate with certifications in their respective fields as well.”
Eligible students for the honor society must have a minimum of three CTE credits, maintain a 90 or above in these classes and keep a 4.0 cumulative GPA. Students are also eligible for NTHS scholarships for after graduation.
