What better way to cap-off the end of a school year than to celebrate with an awards ceremony? That was the case for Oswego County BOCES Multi-Occupational (Multi-Occ) students from the morning and afternoon programs who were honored recently for their hard work, outstanding efforts, and accomplishments.
Students with perfect attendance were honored first followed by special area achievement awards for Job Employment Training (JET) Program students excelling in areas such as bake shop, marketing and retailing and auto detailing. Goals of the JET program include teaching job acquisition skills that students will need for any type of employment as well as entry level skills specific to certain areas of employment. Students in the JET program spend a few weeks each a variety of modules which include job preparation and consumer skills as well as specific employment skills.
Manufacturing Plus students from the afternoon program also received special recognition at the ceremony. Drew Darling, Megan Gleasman, Brittney Hoyt, Josh Johnston, Joanne Latella, Brandon Nelson, Sarah Powell, and Josh Ransier were honored for their outstanding achievement in the program which through wood-working projects, maple syrup collection and production projects and others helps the students learn practices and procedures in the manufacturing world and the world of work.
English instructor Mr. Bill Fisher selected Ben Waite from the morning program and Megan Gleasman from the afternoon program to receive this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s English award for their outstanding educational achievements in the area of English Language Arts.
Rounding out the ceremony was a special slideshow presentation developed by Computer Graphics Teaching Assistant Tammy Furlong followed by a celebration with sweet treats and beverages.
