Celebrating Local High Schools' Outstanding Students

Outstanding Student Commemorative Booklet
  • Instructional Support Services

Each year Orange-Ulster BOCES honors the outstanding students from 23 public and private high schools in our region. OU BOCES honors high school seniors who have demonstrated excellence in academic achievement throughout high school. Traditionally, we celebrate the honorees at a dinner that takes place in a local venue and includes the students, their parents/guardians, the high school principal, the superintendent of schools and the school board president attend the event. This year we are honoring the students with an inspirational and congratulatory video celebration shared below. Each honoree has also been given an official certificate and lawn sign that was delivered to their home. Congratulations to all of the honorees on this well-deserved achievement, and we wish you a bright future!
