This year’s cohort included seven students from Lackawanna High School. Joining NTHS from the following programs were Lackawanna seniors Jawad Atif, Cyber Security & Networking II; Mariama Bah, Dental Laboratory Technology II; Erik Clements, Criminal Justice; Jared Hoehman, Digital Media II; Ciara Hubler, Culinary Arts; Alexis Rolon, Culinary Arts; and De'Ziaire Stevens, Criminal Justice.

Lisa Schmidt, vice president and chief operating officer of Buffalo General Medical Center, provided an inspirational keynote address. An induction ceremony followed her address, which consisted of a presentation of student certificates and the NTHS pledge of excellence.

Over the past several years, the number of students inducted into NTHS has increased. In order to qualify for acceptance into NTHS, a student must be nominated by his or her teacher, have a 90 percent or higher average in their career and technical education (CTE) course, and maintain an overall grade point average (GPA) of 85. Furthermore, students must demonstrate skill development and leadership and hone their responsibility and good character. NTHS takes a holistic approach to evaluating students’ success in the classroom.
