The four Lackawanna students inducted into NTHS included: Arianna Delmont of the Criminal Justice program, Joseph Jiammarino of the Aviation Technology program, and Samia Albakri and Hana Mehmedovic of the Basic Nursing Skills program.
The student candidates were inducted into Erie 1 BOCES chapter of the NTHS at 7 p.m. on March 17 at Maryvale High School’s auditorium. They were supported by family and friends, their career and technical education teachers and administrators, as well as administrators from area school districts.
Over the course of the past several years, the number of students inducted into NTHS has increased, with this year being among the most successful. In order to qualify for acceptance into NTHS, a student must be nominated by his or her teacher, have a 90 percent or higher in their career and technical education course, and maintain an overall GPA of 85. Furthermore, students must have demonstrated skill development, leadership, hone responsibility and good character. NTHS takes a holistic approach to evaluating students’ success in the classroom.
As part of public education, Erie 1 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 Technologies and Game Programming, Basic Nursing Skills, or Aviation Technology, should visit www.e1b.org or speak with their high school counselor.
