Thirty-two Southwestern Community College students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society on Thursday, Nov. 16, on SCC’s Jackson Campus.

They all hold at least a 3.5 Grade Point Average, were nominated by a teaching faculty member and rank among the top 20 percent of active students in their respective programs.

“The number of students selected for this honor society represent only a small fraction of our total student population,” said Dr. Thom Brooks, executive vice president for instruction and student services. “They also represent a wide variety of the programs we offer at SCC, and every one of them worked extremely hard to earn this honor. We are very proud of them all.”

NTHS recognizes outstanding student achievement in career and technical education. It encourages higher scholastic achievement, cultivates a desire for personal excellence and helps students find success in the workplace.

Southwestern, which has been ranked among the Top 10 community colleges in the nation three times in the past decade, serves Jackson, Macon, Swain Counties and the Qualla Boundary.
