CTE student at Recognition Ceremony
  • Career & Technical Education

 On June 11 – 13, 2021, the Orange-Ulster BOCES Division of Career and Technical Education (CTE) held its 54nd annual Student Recognition Ceremony at its Arden Hill and Gibson Road campuses in Goshen, N.Y.  Over seven hundred students were honored for completing their various CTE programs.

During their two years attending CTE programs, some students earned as many as 20 college credits to jump-start their post-secondary education. More than $19, 500 in scholarships for outstanding performance and community service was also awarded to students during the evening ceremony.

One of the highlights each year is the recognition of the Outstanding Student Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards.  This year, the Outstanding Student Gold Award, CTE's highest honor, was presented to Caleb Garver, a graduate of Chester Academy and a Computer Networking student in the STEM Careers Academy. The Outstanding Student Silver Award recipient was Lillian Menichiello from Marlboro High School, a Law Enforcement student in the Security Careers Academy. Sade Pasha from Monroe-Woodbury High School, an Animal Science student in the Environmental Careers Academy, received the Outstanding Student Bronze Award.

CTE valedictorian was Dylan Dworak from Pine Bush High School, and the salutatorian was Jason Davis from Minisink Valley High School.
