CINCINNATI — Antonelli College is proud to announce the addition of the National Technical Honors Society (NTHS) and Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) to the list of student focused organizations on campus.
"I am pleased to offer students the chance to expand their horizons through involvement with the National Technical Honors Society and Phi Beta Lambda," said Executive Campus Director Karen Gautreau. "Both organizations are synonymous with excellence in the education process and beyond into professional industries."
The National Technical Honors Society recognizes student achievement in career and technical education. Charters are granted to high schools and two-year colleges offering career and technical programs. Antonelli College is one of 119 educational institutions in Ohio with a charter and one of nine in the Queen City.
Students working toward their Associate of Applied Business in Information Technology with a 3.0 GPA and above will be eligible for membership. As a member of the National Technical Honors Society, students will have access to more than $90,000 in scholarships and potential to compete for awards via the Silver Star of Excellence program and Hall of Fame distinction.
“Membership in the NTHS is a perfect reason for students to excel in the classroom. While the member title is something they can boast about professionally for years, the scholarship opportunities offer immediate rewards,” said Lee Foley, Information Technology department chair and NTHS advisor.
Phi Beta Lambda, the post-secondary division of Future Business Leaders of America, reaches over 11,000 college students. Upon their graduation, alumni have the opportunity to continue their commitment to the organization’s mission through the Professional Division.
“Many of our students have entrepreneurial aspirations after graduation; the great thing about PBL is it is offered to all programs, not just those studying business,” noted Christa Eldridge, Hospitality Arts department chair and PBL advisor. “In offering our entire population the chance to participate, those in any program can refine their business and networking skills.”
Antonelli College also inducts academically advanced students into the Alpha Beta Kappa National Honors Society once a year; quarterly students can earn placement on the Dean’s or Director’s List.
