“I have been doing this for many years and I never tire of not only getting to know our National Technical Honor Society students, but also experiencing the conference with others from all over the state,” said Pam McEachern, adviser.
Voice of the Oklahoma City Redhawks Alex Freedman gave the keynote speech. Students also heard from Warren Martin, executive director of the General Tommy Franks Leadership Institute and Museum, as well as Richard Hedrick, director of the Oklahoma Sports Museum. Kate Allen, chapter services coordinator from the NTHS national office, was recognized as a special guest.
This year’s theme was “Oklahoma NTHS All Stars,” and students came from all across Oklahoma.
“Students were engaged and had a great time interacting with this year’s speakers,” said Jeremy Zweiacker, state NTHS liaison for the Oklahoma Department of CareerTech Education. "The NTHS members will be participating in the 17th annual Day at the Capitol on Feb. 20."
