Katherine and Bonnie VanBuren, a daughter and mother who were both inducted into the National Technical Honor Society Induction at the 2019 ceremony
Congratulations to the 65 students from the F. Donald Myers Education Center who were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) on April 30. To be inducted, students must maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 92 percent in their Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. In addition, students must maintain a GPA of 85 at their home school district, have fewer than 9 absences per year, be nominated by their instructor, and obtain a recommendation by their CTE counselor. Adult students are eligible as well.
Included among in the 2019 inductees was a mother and daughter, Bonnie VanBuren and Katherine VanBuren. Both are students in the Cosmetology program. Bonnie, a mother of five, returned to the Cosmetology program after 20 years to finish what she started. Bonnie has been on high honor roll every quarter. Her career goal is to own a salon. Bonnie's favorite quote is "Its never too late to be what you might have been" by George Elliot.
Bonnie's daughter Katherine has enjoyed spending her senior year with her mom in the cosmetology program and was very excited that they were both inducted into NTHS. Next year Kathrine will attend Adirondack Community college for business management.
