Central Tech Students Inducted into 2017 National Technical Honor Society
Central Tech inducted 162 students into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during ceremonies in April and May at both the Drumright and Sapulpa campuses. This year Central Tech is delighted to have two recipients of the prestigious Jon H. Poteat Scholarship. Nathaniel Adamson of Sapulpa and Elizabeth Meridith of Mannford were two of 225 outstanding NTHS members chosen to receive the $1,000 scholarship.
The Jon H. Poteat scholarship, named in honor and memory of the co-founder of the Society, is awarded annually to NTHS members who consistently exemplify the seven character attributes of the National Technical Honor Society – Skill, Honesty, Service, Responsibility, Scholarship, Citizenship, and Leadership. Congratulations to Nathaniel Adamson for this prestigious award.
