ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Several Albany Tech scholars were recognized for their hard work Thursday night.

Twelve students qualified for the Spring National Technical Honor Society.

Some of the qualifications include completing a minimum of 18 credit hours, holding a 3.5 grade point average and exemplifying qualities of an honor student. 

As the keynote speaker, Albany Tech's Academic Affairs Vice President shared her personal story with the students. 

One inductee was excited about using the organization to give back to the community.

Another plans to motivate other students to strive for success.   

"I heard the National Technical Honor Society is really big on service and I'm really keen in giving back to my community," said inductee Jamekia Collins. 

"You know don't ever think you're not good enough to do anything, set your goals and pursue them, don't let anybody tell you anything different, you know you do what you want to do, that's the most important thing," remarked inductee Bryan Haltman. 

Albany Tech holds the National Technical Honor Society induction ceremony in the fall and the spring. 

They inducted 15 students in Fall 2016.
