NTHS Ceremony at Cleveland
Regional Vice President of Operations and Cleveland Campus President Todd Zvaigzne, Operations Manager Joyce Kucharson, Director of Education Terhan Freeman, Health Sciences Instructor/NTHS Advisor Mark Hord, Registrar Shaina Lane, and a host of faculty, staff, and family members attended the induction ceremony.

Inductees heard remarks from Cleveland Campus leaders, learned about the goals and values of the NTHS, and came forward to receive their NTHS pin, certificate, membership card, decal, and diploma seal. When these students graduate, they will receive a special tassel with an NTHS emblem on it to affix to their graduation cap. The new inductees recited the NTHS pledge, and the entire group of attendees enjoyed refreshments after the ceremony.

NTHS Nomination Process at Remington College
To be nominated for the NTHS, a student must achieve at least a 3.6 GPA and a 90% attendance rate, earn one or more faculty or staff recommendations, show active involvement in volunteering, and display an attitude exemplifying the values of the NTHS.

Each department receives a list of eligible students. A department representative then selects the students who best exemplify the values of the department as role models and leaders.

The nominated students are asked to select a topic from a prepared list and craft a 500- to 1,000-word essay, along with completing the NTHS membership application. From there, Campus administrators select the honorees. Those who become members pay a lifetime NTHS membership fee of $25.

Cleveland Health Sciences Technology Instructor and NTHS Advisor Mark Hord said, “After reading our students’ essays, I have been impressed that these elite students have no pattern or mold into which they fit. Their backgrounds and opportunities are varied, yet their personal dedication and character has brought each of them to this great honor. As the NTHS motto says, ‘Success favors the prepared mind.’ These honorees have shown their dedication and focus and are very deserving of this recognition.”
