Schoharie High School students Louis Hardendorf, Mark Molesky and Joseph Somes were recently recognized for excellence in their studies at SCS and in Career and Technical Education (CTE) by being inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS).

The students were inducted at a May 28 ceremony at Colonie Central High School. Through the Capital Region BOCES CTE program, Louis studies Manufacturing & Machining Technology; Mark studies Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration; and Joseph studies Electrical Trades.

To be honored, they had to meet criteria including earning grade point averages (GPA) of 92 or greater at CTE and an overall GPA of 85 or greater at Schoharie, as well as having five or fewer absences. 

“I’m in awe of what you have accomplished,” Dr. Valerie Kelsey, deputy director of career and technical education for Capital Region BOCES, told the students, family and friends gathered for the ceremony. “You have proven that you have the right stuff, that you are the right workers employers are seeking.”
