      Albany Tech students receive top honor

      Students from all different majors who are high-achieving both on and off Albany Technical College's campus were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society on Thursday

      Franklin Harris, a Dawson firefighter and student in the fire science program says the recognition means a lot to him and the extra training could help in many ways.

      "It will be something that may save my life or my comrade TMs life or maybe someone in the public's life. It's something I can pass on to my children and they can pass to their children as well, I think it's something to be proud of, said Harris.

      To be inducted, the students had to maintain a certain grade point average, score no lower than a B on any course exam and be nominated by their instructor.\
