After a 56 year absence, Ralph R. McKee CTE High School has re-established their chapter of the National Honor Society. There was a ceremony on Thursday, May 21, 2009 in the Black Box Theater.
The children looked lovely. The parents beamed. At the end of the ceremony was an opportunity to break bread and reflect. One parent indicated that to see his son saying the oath to officially be inducted into the National Honor Society was particularly touching because the parent never graduated high school.
By the way, the redesign of a classroom into a Black Box Theater was due to the efforts of Mr. Pane's Drafting class and Mr. O'Connell's Construction class. I am always grateful and proud to be part of a career and technical high school. The opportunities for experiential learning are gratifying.
