Several hundred Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School (CTE) students were honored Tuesday, June 5, during ceremonies at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady.
With a packed house of parents, family members, friends, CTE faculty and staff, BOCES administrators and educators from their home districts looking on, the 295 program completers and dozens more first-year students were honored during morning and afternoon ceremonies for excellence in their chosen trades.
Dozens of awards were handed out ranging from college scholarships to program awards.
Among those honored were two Mohonasen students. Mike Tilison, an AYES (automotive) student, was named the SkillsUSA Student of the Year. The award is given to the student who best exemplifies SkillsUSA by his/her leadership and service to others, participation in all facets of the organization and dedication and diligence to his/her vocation.
Kaitlynn Countryman, a nurse assistant student, received the Joe Fuchs Award.
Congratulations to both students!
