National Technical Honor Society Induction

Latarsha Williams, the climax speaker for yesterday’s National Technical Honor Society induction ceremony left new members with the three key ingredients that fulfill a victor’s dream—character, tests and effort, an acronym for CTE (Career and Technical Education).

There will be tests in the classrooms, and there will definitely be tests in life,” Williams emphasized. “There is a testimony after the test, so I encourage you all to take the tests until you pass the test.”

Williams works for the Coahoma Community College CTE program as the Resource and Referral Center Associate. A former member of the National Technical Honor Society at CCC in 1998, she told attendees it was a dream of hers to return to her alma mater and pay it forward. She received her Associate of Applied Science degree in Early Childhood Development and continued her education at Delta State University. Williams has attained both a bachelor’s and master’s degree and is a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.

She emphasized to the NTHS members that the recognition was a milestone of significance.

Latarsha Williams“This ceremony is the culmination of your investments; your time, your passion and your energy have led you here,” Williams said. “Today, you get to receive your first paycheck because all of your hard work and dedication has paid off. It’s officially pay day.”

Dean of the Career-Tech program, Ann Shelton-Clark pinned the five inductees, formally making them members of the honor society. The new members include Tre’Sha Banks, a Clarksdale native who is studying culinary arts; Lee Myles, Jr., a Dundee, MS native taking up barbering; Timothy Sacks, who is also a barbering student from Marks; Rykieschella Thomas, a Tutwiler native in the Early Childhood Education program and Reginald Walker, a barbering student from Leland.

The new members of the honor society have attained a grade point average of 3.5 or higher. They had to be nominated by a faculty or staff member and involved in a campus organization to be considered. The National Technical Honor Society, founded in 1984, seeks out students who have exhibited excellence in their chosen trade of the technical program. The honor society also gives the students exposure to top corporations and industry professionals of their respective career field.
