The work of eleven Lancaster High School students in Career and Technical Education programs was recognized as they were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society. 

The inducted Lancaster students are Josephine Chayban (Health Careers), Max Dobucki (Electrical Systems), James Knauber (Building Trades), Alex Komrek (Culinary Arts), Michael Krickovich (Cybersecurity and Networking), Madison Oddo (Culinary Arts), Tyler Pluff (Cybersecruity and Networking), Owen Power (Building Trades), Michael Prout (Building Trades), Sean Steele (Building Trades), Grace Szpylman (Early Childhood Education).

The students were a part of the 194 Erie 1 BOCES students inducted into the national organization during a November 2 ceremony at Villa Maria College in Buffalo. 

Dr. Matthew Giordano, president of Villa Maria College, said the students’ academic development was important for themselves and for the region. 

“We have a lot of challenges and a lot of great opportunities; opportunities that we haven't seen in Buffalo and in Western New York in a long, long time, and they're right here,” he said. “You have the chance to make the most of those opportunities.”
