Thursday, April 04, 2019
Culinary Arts students were servers at the 2019 Annual Dinner
Culinary Arts, Criminal Justice, Health Occupations, SkillsUSA, FFA, Early College Career Academy New Media, and Horticulture students all contributed and represented CTE at the 2019 WSWHE BOCES Annual Dinner. Guests from our 31 component school districts enjoyed the evening and the opportunity to see their students in action.
Culinary Arts students prepared and served over 90 meals. Criminal Justice Studies students directed traffic. Horticulture students created centerpieces for the tables. New Media students designed the program and other handouts. SkillsUSA and FFA members discussed their organizations and acted as student ambassadors for the evening.
Instructors Michelle Clute-Smith and Claudia Hargis-Grover made a presentation about the Health Occupations program, along with current student Courtney Cameron of Hudson Falls CSD. A video about the program, and how critical it is to a growing need for health care professionals in our area, was shown.
BOCES Board of Education member, Mia Pfitzer was recognized, posthumously, for her outstanding service to the WSWHE Region with the President's Award. Mia's husband, Greg Pfitzer, accepted the award.
