Congratulations to the F. Donald Myers Education Center CTE Class of 2024!

This year, 295 high school seniors received their completion certificates from the F. Donald Myers Education Center on June 18, 2024. The ceremony was held at the Saratoga City Center.

CTE staff have cultivated an environment of learning that is unparalleled. They’ve helped students to uncover their unique strengths and interests, and they’ve helped to develop critical skills, self-confidence, and a standard of excellence that shows through CTE students’ performance at career competitions. Many CTE students will go on to college, technical schools or get right into the workforce. 

WSWHE BOCES District Superintendent, Dr. Turina Parker, acknowledged the magnitude of the day’s celebration.

“You have achieved successes that may have once seemed out of reach. You have persevered through obstacles that did not deter you from your ultimate goal. You have succeeded despite challenges.…We applaud you, class of 2024,” said Dr. Parker.  

Dr. Parker encouraged the students to believe in themselves and to recognize their worth and the unique value they bring to the table. 

The 2024 student speaker and Guidance Award recipient from the Early Childhood Education Program, Rebekah Hodges, said, “anyone can be a leader, whether you are quiet, or loud, well known or not known at all. A leader comes in all shapes and sizes. You all are leaders in some way. A leader inspires and motivates. If you are a parent, friend, teacher, sibling, teammate, you are a leader. Continue to stay true to yourself because that makes the biggest impact.” 

“I urge you all to step out of your comfort zone to see what you can accomplish and encourage your peers to do the same,” added Hodges.

The ceremony was live streamed for family and friends who were unable to attend the in-person event.
