National Technical Honor Society

What is the mission of NTHS?

To honor student achievement and leadership, award scholarships, promote educational excellence and enhance career opportunities for the NTHS membership.

What is NTHS?

The CFHS Chapter of the National Technical Honor Society is an active organization that supports the local community through service (volunteering) and supports CTE (Career & Technical Education). Only juniors and seniors who meet certain criteria (listed on the application) are allowed to join this organization. All active members who sufficiently complete certain requirements will earn the privilege to wear NTHS honor cords at graduation. Joining NTHS is the only way for a CTE student from any CTE program to earn honor cords for graduation. No other CTE program awards honor cords for graduation.

Why join NTHS? 

It is an important career investment, respected by business, industry, and education that will add value and prestige to your professional portfolio.

 

Student candidates must meet national and local membership standards and should be persons who have demonstrated scholastic achievement, skill development, leadership, honesty, responsibility, and good character. Membership in a career/technical student organization (CTSO) is important to leadership development and career preparation and therefore, strongly encouraged.

For some of you, even though this is your 2nd year, you will still need to re-apply for it again this year.
