National Technical Honor Society
Advisor: Mrs. Henry & Mr. Frye
Students must have taken at least one CTE course and must currently be a paid member of a Career and Technical Student Organization(CTSO).
Students who meet the requirements for membership outlined by their school’s chapter are eligible to be invited for membership. Each chapter is required to publish its qualifications for membership, which is based on the four pillars of NTHS:
Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence. (Each school chapter is allowed to require a higher cumulative GPA.)
This involves contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean attendance and disciplinary record.
- • Students who meet the scholarship requirement will have an opportunity to complete a form detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, and character.
Understanding the Obligations of Membership
Students who accept membership and are inducted into the chapter should be aware of the time and commitment involved with this honor. For example, there will be chapter meetings. The chapter bylaws should articulate the yearly meeting schedule and member attendance obligations. Members also must participate in chapter and individual service projects to benefit the school and community. Contact the chapter adviser to obtain a full list of the obligations of membership for the school’s chapter.
At the time of application, the student must have an overall high school GPA of at least 3.0 (unweighted).
The student must have taken one CTE course.
The student must have passed all courses in the previous semester, and continue to pass all classes once inducted.
Senior members must accumulate a total of 10 service hours to receive graduation cords.
Prior or future school disciplinary, illegal, or academic actions may exclude a student from selection or continued membership. Students in the NTHS are expected to be role models in all areas at LCHS.
If accepted, the student pays a one-time new membership fee of $35. This is due before the induction ceremony.
Members will be removed from NTHS if the member does not achieve and report their service hours by the deadline, does not maintain the required minimum GPA, does not continue to pass all classes, or has an academic integrity issue.
Membership will be closed March 1st at 11:59 pm
Community Service Project:
Every senior NTHS member shall complete a community service project at a minimum of 10 hours.
Members shall document the service project with digital pictures and summary of the work.
These digital files will be uploaded and presented on the NTHS and/or CTE webpages to showcase the projects after they are completed.
Work can be submitted digitally to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

Lee County High School senior Brandon Ramirez spoke at the Lee County Schools Convocation. Brandon is an outstanding student with a long list of accomplishments. He has been the SkillsUSANC student president and is the current SkillsUSA national student president. He is an Academy of Engineering and Adobe Academy student that has won the Lenovo App Challenge and attained many certifications. He represents Lee County Schools well and what all educators strive for. Brandon's speech was undeniably motivational to anyone who heard it. Thanks Brandon!
We are extremely proud to announce that Lee County High School Academy of Engineering student's Brandon Ramirez, Sebastian Sandi-Siles, and Mico Edralin has been named one of the winning teams in 2018 Lenovo Scholar Network Mobile App Development Competition. In total, six winning teams were chosen and students from nearly 120 Lenovo Scholar Network academies across the nation were eligible to submit two entries for the competition. Thousands of students in Lenovo Scholar Network academies were given Lenovo laptops, tablets, or Moto phones and were tasked with designing, coding, developing, and testing a mobile app.
The competition originated to encourage greater interest among underserved high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. The results every year are a testament to the students’ talent, innovation, and originality in applying their classroom-learning to solve a real-world issue.
The winning teams will present their apps to audiences at NAF Next, NAF’s annual professional development conference, in Washington DC this July. “Fan Favorite” voting also opens today and allows the students’ local communities to voice their opinions on the apps and share their top pick. This team will also receive Lenovo products.
As part of the program, NAF, Lenovo, and MIT work together to provide technical assistance and to develop support materials for academies using MIT App Inventor.
