An induction ceremony for BRTC’s National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) was held April 8 in the Randolph County Development Center. The event drew a large crowd with more students than ever before being inducted, according to Nanette Carter, Phlebotomy instructor and NTHS advisor.
NTHS, a recent addition to the honor societies at BRTC, recognizes the accomplishments of students in the college’s technical education programs. It encourages members to maintain high personal standards and invest their talents, skills, and knowledge in their future careers, their everyday lives, and their communities.

In addition to Carter, NTHS advisors are Alan Haskins, Fire Science instructor; Gary Meier, Machine Tool Technology instructor; and Mack Downey, Business instructor. NTHS Officers are Susan Glasgow, President; Samuel Story, Vice President; Garrett Johnson, Secretary; and Carmen Cobb, Treasurer.
BRTC faculty and staff present for the event were Dr. Wayne Hatcher, President; Angie Caldwell, Vice President of Technical Education; Phillip Dickson, Division Chair of Technical Education; Ramonda Housh, Interim Division Chair of Allied Health; and Rhonda Stone, Department Head of Business.
“We had a great event and an awesome turnout this year,” Carter noted, “with lots of support from the families.”
