Barry Tech students join National Technical Honor Society

Nassau BOCES Barry Tech students join elite scholars from across the country as member of national honor society

More than 80 students attending Nassau BOCES Barry Tech, representing 29 school districts from across Long Island, were named as member of the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS). These outstanding scholars earned exclusive membership in this distinguished academic institution through superior scholastic achievement, dedicated community service and the enthusiastic endorsement of their teachers. 

“We’re extremely proud of our NTHS scholars, especially their unwavering commitment to academic excellence in these challenging times,” said Dr. Carla Theodorou, Executive Direction, Nassau BOCES Department of Regional Schools and Instructional Programs. “Barry Tech students have the advanced technical knowledge, integrity and maturity that will give them an advantage in new and emerging industries.” 

Membership in the NTHS is the nation’s highest honor for excellence in career and technical education. These students have consistently distinguished themselves by exemplifying exceptional qualities, such as honesty, leadership, responsibility and good character. They are the embodiment of the NTHS vision, “success favors the prepared mind.” 

The NTHS is recognized by business, industry and education as the standard for student achievement and leadership in career and technical education. Membership in the NTHS helps students find success in today’s highly competitive workplace by encouraging scholastic achievement and cultivating a desire for excellence. Members are awarded personalized letters of recommendation for employment, college admission and scholarships, and have their diplomas and training certificates stamped with the official NTHS seal.
