Capital Region BOCES students recruited by area colleges

A couple of dozen institutions recruit students

 
Students are recruitedNearly two dozen institutions of higher learning descended on the Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School (CTE) Albany campus Wednesday, Nov. 4  to recruit students two days after paying a visit to the Schoharie CTE campus.

The campuses hosted their annual fall college fairs this week to provide an opportunity for students to get information about higher education and how to take the work skills they have learned at CTE to the next level.

About 90 percent of CTE students go on to college to pursue further education. Some use college to advance their CTE skills, while others use the skills learned at CTE to pay for their college educations.

"I am going to college at SUNY Adirondack in the fall to study veterinary sciences and in my spare time I am going to work in a salon using the skills I learned here to pay for college,� said Kierra Yauchler, of Niskayuna.

Meanwhile Robert Epps of Voorheesville plans to build on his auto body repair skills in college.

"Without going here, I wouldnt have known what I want do," said Epps.  "But now I know I
want to go to college and open my own body shop."
