National Technical Honor Society
The National Technical Honor Society is an honor society established in 1984 to honor student achievement and leadership in career and technical education, promote educational excellence, award scholarships, and enhance career opportunities for the NTHS membership.  Members will be eligible to apply for scholarships through the National Technical Honor Society. 
Cost: One-time membership fee of $35.  
Membership Requirements: 
  • Must have completed or be enrolled in their third CTE course (personal finance qualifies only for students in the business pathway).

  • Must have (and maintain) a GPA of at least 3.5 on the 4.0 scale for CTE courses
