Cortland Students Inducted in the National Technical Honor Society

National Technical Honor Society


Part of our mission at Cortland Enlarged City School District is to allow students to reach their fullest potential in becoming life-long learners and successful, contributing members of the society in which they live. Career and Technical Education provides career-oriented learning experiences for students and allows students to explore what a future would be like in a technical field.

Students at Cortland Senior High School have an opportunity to begin hands on training in a specific career field at the OCM BOCES McEvoy Campus. Students that choose to participate in the Career and Technical Education program can qualify to be inducted in the National Technical Honor Society by having an 85 average or higher, 12 or fewer absences from their program for the year and receive a teacher endorsement. Students must also demonstrate attributes that include: respect, honesty, skill, responsibility, leadership, service and citizenship.

The following Cortland Senior High School students were inducted to the National Technical Honor Society on April 4, 2018:  

  • Kyle Behrenfeld (New Vision Environmental Science)

  • Anessa Blumenfeld (Cosmetology)

  • Kelsey Gibbons (New Vision Medical Professions)

Several administrators, as well as parents, were invited to the ceremony. Cortland Senior High School Principal John Zarcone attended the ceremony and said, “teaching our kids to not only excel in the academic realm but also in the technical realm is something that we take pride in. Part of being prepared for the future is learning skills that are applicable to current employment trends. We are proud of all of our students in the entire District, but on this day we celebrate the names listed above for their induction to the NTHS. I speak for Mr. Mack and myself, when I say it was an honor to be at the ceremony.”

Career and technical education will continue to play an important role in preparing students for the future. Hands on training in the career and technical field for many of our students often translates directly to careers and continued education post graduation. Overall, Cortland is proud of our students that received this honor!
