CV Tech Receives National Technical Honor Society Silver Star of Excellence
May 24, 2019 - CV Tech Admin
Canadian Valley Technology Center has been recognized as a Silver Star of Excellence recipient by the National Technical Honor Society in recognition of the school’s educational excellence and community involvement.
The hallmark award recognizes individual chapters and school districts who best meet requirements of the society’s attributes, which include service, responsibility and citizenship. Recipients must take the society’s values beyond the comfort of the local chapter to open opportunities for members to meet new people and discover new ideas.
The society congratulated CV Tech advisors who have insisted on the strictest adherence to NTHS standards. They include Mary Beth Carver, Sarah McDaniel and Andrea Verser at the Chickasha Campus, Karen Sneary at the Cowan Campus and Jeff Herndon at the El Reno Campus.
CV Tech has 245 qualifying first-year and 60 second-year students this year who have been recognized with society membership. That’s an increase of 17 percent from last year. Members must maintain an “A” average in their program, have fewer than three absences and receive recommendation by their instructor for inclusion.
CV Tech students participated in more than 70 community service activities this school year. Verser said that cannot be overlooked, because students genuinely want to do something for others. Sometimes they need a little push and a few directions, she said, but they desperately want to make a difference.
