Eight SGTC Students Inducted into National Technical Honor Society
A new slate of South Georgia Technical College students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) Americus Campus chapter recently. The eight new inductees were invited to join the organization based on their high academic achievement.
The new inductees included Anniya Barron of Americus, a general studies student; Prince Terrell Burns of Americus, networking specialist; Dakota Allan Kuhn of Americus, aviation maintenance technology; Adrian Mo’nique Queenie of Americus, business technology; Joshua Gregory Smallwood of Americus, aviation maintenance technology, Andrew Rosser Stevens of Americus, aviation maintenance technology; SheKetta Shanta Wakefield of Americus, medical assisting; and Megan Elizabeth Yarbrough of Americus, early childhood care and education.
The ceremony began with a welcome and an occasion from NTHS advisor and SGTC English instructor Raven Payne. The inductees then participated in the ritual candle lighting ceremony – a ceremony in which each member lights a candle that represents one of the eight points of NTHS’s mission: knowledge, skill, honesty, service, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship and leadership.
Following the ceremony, the inductees recited the NTHS Pledge of Membership and received their new pins – a symbol of their membership in the prestigious organization.
In addition to serving as leaders on campus, the NTHS, along with the other student organizations on campus, often sponsor and serve their classmates and the community by volunteering and helping with events.
The National Technical Honor Society honors the achievements of students within workforce education, provides scholarships to encourage the pursuit of higher education, and cultivates excellence in today’s highly competitive workforce.
