HERO Project is a Homerun


School is a walk in the park; just ask students enrolled in the Heavy Equipment Repair and Operations Program (HERO) at Oswego County BOCES.

The six HERO students are all from the Central Square Central School District and the project gave them an opportunity to give back to their school district’s community.

HERO students recently finished a project that took them out of their classroom and on the job site at A.A. Cole Elementary School in the Central Square Central School District.

The students, in cooperation with the North Shore Junior Baseball League, refurbished the baseball diamond located adjacent to the school.

Students moved two backstop fences and benches, graded out a ridge along the edge of the property, redid the baselines, and landscaped the area.

HERO Instructor John DeSantis said that the project only took four class days complete and gave students valuable on-site work experience.

In addition, the project gave students an opportunity to give back to their community as a majority of the students who worked on the project were from the Central Square Central School District.
