Orange Bank & Trust Company and Local Businesses Celebrate CTE Outstanding Students

Career & Technical Education Outstanding Students
  • Career & Technical Education

Congratulations to the thirty-four outstanding CTE students who were recognized this year for excelling in all aspects of their education including theory, practical skills and work-based learning! OU BOCES is very grateful to Orange Bank & Trust Company and all sponsors for recognizing and honoring the next generation of skilled professionals. In 2013, Michael Gilfeather, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Orange Bank & Trust Company, came up with the idea to honor outstanding CTE students with a celebratory dinner. Due to the pandemic, in lieu of the dinner ceremony that traditionally would have been held, all outstanding students received a certificate and a copy of the program in honor of their accomplishments.
