National Technical Honor Society
The local chapter of the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) was established in 1985. As a national organization, NTHS has as its purpose:
To promote the ideals of honesty, service, leadership, career development, and skilled workmanship.
To reward meritorious achievement in technical education.
To encourage and assist technical students in their pursuit of educational and career goals.
To develop a greater awareness within the American business, industry, and service communities about the talents and abilities of students engaged in technical education.
To provide technical students with a greater awareness of the world of work .
The qualifications for membership in NTHS are:
Residence: The student must have completed one full quarter in attendance at Southwest Georgia Technical College and must have satisfactorily completed a minimum of 8 credit hours of course work.
Academic: The student must have a GPA of 3.75 for the quarter in which he/she is nominated and a cumulative GPA of 3.30. All program requirements must also be met for the quarter in which he/she is nominated. To maintain eligibility for membership, the student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.30.
Attendance: Attendance must be in accordance with Southwest Georgia Technical College’s Attendance Policy.
Benefits of membership in the NTHS are:
Certificate of membership.
Membership card and membership pin.
Seal indicating membership on diploma or completion document.
Three (3) letters of recommendation sent upon request to any business, industry, or educational institution where you are making application.
Every student enrolled at Southwest Georgia Technical College is eligible for membership in the NTHS. The requirements for membership must be maintained. Grades, progress, and attendance will be checked after the completion of each quarter.
If a member fails to maintain the requirements, the Advisor will place that student on probation for that quarter. After that probationary quarter, the student’s grades/attendance will again be checked. If that student has improved so as to again meet NTHS requirements, he/she will be taken from probation. If, however, the student again fails to meet the NTHS requirements, the Advisor will drop him/her from the chapter. If the student does not maintain the requirements for NTHS membership during his/her last quarter, the silver seal of the NTHS will not be attached to his/her diploma. In addition, the letters of recommendation from NTHS will be withheld. NTHS members must be in good standing at the time of graduation.
