Three RCS students among inductees into National Technical Honor Society

Fifty-seven Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School (CTE) students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) on Monday, May 23. Among those inducted were three Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk students: Zackery Burns who is studying electrical trades; Brian Netkin who is in the criminal justice program; and Slade Young who is in the informational technology program.

To be honored, students had to meet several criteria, including achieving grade point averages (GPA) of 92 or greater at Career & Tech, an overall GPA of 85 or greater at their high schools and have five or fewer absences.

The induction class was the largest ever at Capital Region BOCES, executive principal Denise Capece told a standing-room only crowd of inductees, parents, teachers, school administrators and family members.

“You have gone the extra mile. You have left your home schools, come to the Career and Technical Center and learned new skills – all while maintaining academic excellence,” Capital Region BOCES District Superintendent Dr. Charles S. Dedrick told the students.
