BOCES makes appearance at county fair
LPN students along with teacher Debbie Dittmer and aide Melissa Carson in the Continuing Education Department offered free blood pressure readings and Jake Daniels, the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center Building Trades teacher built a convertible picnic bench to highlight some of the programs.
Teachers Chris Burdick, Early Childhood Education, Anne Carnahan and Sue Lindke, Cosmetology, Bill Leggett, Electricity and Electronics, Bill Rakonczay, Precision Machine Technology, Ed Grabowski, Security and Law Enforcement, Mike Schultz, Heavy Equipment/Agricultural Mechanics, Eric Farrell, Welding, Placement Coordinator Roger Amati, Board of Education President Rebecca Albright, Principal Mike Weyrauch, Director of Career and Technical Education Joe Steinmetz, District Superintendent Dr. Clark Godshall, Continuing Education Counselor Marlene Mical and Public Relations Director Lisa Bielmeier were also on hand to talk about educational options over the five day event.
“This was a great opportunity to talk to the public about what we offer to high school students and adults to further their education,” said Lisa Bielmeier. “Many people still don’t know what a BOCES is, how many programs are at our sites and what is available to them. Our staff was very excited about this chance to highlight our programs and the successes their students have had. We strongly urge anyone who did not have a chance to talk to us there to go to our website at www.onboces.org to get information or contact us for more details.”
