“The purpose of the NTHS is to acknowledge outstanding student achievement in technical education,” explained CTE Director, Camille Goins. “Being a part of the NTHS also offers scholarship opportunities for its members as well.”

The ceremony included guest speaker Tonia Stephenson, President of the Laurinburg/Scotland County Chamber of Commerce, remarks by students Logan Wagner (HOSA) and Maya Addai (FBLA), with special entertainment from Samantha Ray, CTE Digital Media Instructor.  After the candle-lighting ceremony, inducted students received a certificate recognizing their achievement as well as a NTHS honor cord which they then wear with their cap and gown at graduation.
