5 FCAHS Juniors To Be Inducted Into National Technical Honor Society
Five Fox Chapel Area High School and A.W. Beattie Career Center juniors will be inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) this year. The Fox Chapel Area students are Isaiah Charapp – Culinary Arts, Matthew Ebel – Automotive Technology, Kevin Fornaser – Automotive Technology, Ashton Monroe – Culinary Arts, and Matthew Sheeler – Computer Systems Technology. The students will be inducted at an invitation-only induction ceremony at A.W. Beattie on April 7, 2020.
To be considered for the honor, students must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale, have a grade of at least 93% in their career training programs, and miss no more than five days of school. Candidates also must have a clear disciplinary record and belong to a service organization or participate in an extracurricular activity. The NTHS provides scholarships for ongoing education and works to improve the skilled workforce.
“We have 800 students, and we have 63 on that list to be inducted and they represent the best of their class,” Beattie Student Ethics Coordinator and NTHS advisor Scott Scariot said. “I’m proud of them for how hard they work and how they’ve met difficult standards to be nominated by their teachers for induction into the NTHS.”
Students and families interested in learning more about A.W. Beattie Career Center’s 20 programs can attend an open house from 5:15-8:15 p.m. on March 5. The school is located at 9600 Babcock Blvd. in McCandless.
