    The event, held at Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES’ Yorktown campus on May 18, was attended by BOCES administration, Tech Center faculty, students, friends and family members. In addition to those students who were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society, more than 80 students received scholarships and awards.

    “Whether they are framing a house in Carpentry, saving a tree in Urban Forestry or comforting a child in Early Childhood Education, Tech Center students gain skills few others do,” Vilma Ramos of Walter Panas High School told the audience of 400, including fellow honorees, Tech Center faculty and staff, students, friends and family.

    The Honor Society looks for students who “demonstrate a spirit of personal excellence, honesty, leadership, teamwork and responsibility,” said Chelsea Horsfield of Walter Panas High School. The honorees, from high schools throughout the region, all attend technical and career classes at BOCES.

    In addition to scholarship, inductees had to exhibit  character, skill, leadership and service.

    Lighting a candle to represent “service,” Nicholas Mills of Walter Panas High School listed the organizations that Tech students aid with volunteer work, including volunteer ambulance companies and fire departments, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the Special Olympics, ROTC programs, Guiding Eyes for the Blind and more.

    BOCES Superintendent Dr. James Ryan told the students that he and the faculty were proud of them.

    “I have seldom seen students who have such tremendous composure, maturity and focus on their areas of interest,” he said. “I really am so taken by the dedication that you have for your areas of interest, and I know that you are going to do great things as you go from Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES.”

    In all, 104 students from Westchester and Putnam were inducted into the honor society.
