Excellence in CTE
Thousands of schools and colleges throughout the U.S. and its territories have an NTHS chapter. Member schools agree that NTHS encourages higher scholastic achievement, awards scholarships, and cultivates excellence in tomorrow's workforce. Education is a critical and integral element that advances economies and NTHS gorges positive relationships with high schools, technical institutions and colleges to promote higher learning. Knowing the need for members to pursue higher degrees, NTHS strives to build bridges between secondary schools, post-secondary technical institutions and colleges.
Scholarships for Higher Education
The Jon H. Poteat Scholarship Foundation will award over $225,000 in 2018 to NTHS members. It is our belief that CTE students must be supported and encouraged to seek higher education in today's highly competitive global community. Aware of increasing costs to attend post-secondary schools, NTHS is dedicated to providing scholarships to career and technical education students who choose a skilled trade as their career. Within the last three years, two Grimsley students have received a John H. Poteat Scholarship in the amount of $1,000 each.
Grimsley has had an active NTHS chapter for the past 20 years. To become a member of Grimsley's NTHS, students must be a CTE concentrator, by completing a career pathway within a career cluster. Students must have an overall GPA of 3.0 and an overall CTE GPA of 3.5. Students must complete an application for membership, be recommended by CTE faculty, and have no discipline or attendance issues. Applications for the NTHS will be taken near the end of the first semester. Selected students will attend an induction ceremony with their parents, and will receive a cord that can be worn for senior graduation activities, an NTHS pin, and an NTHS certificate.
