Broome-Tioga BOCES Graduation

Cosmetology, carpentry, and technical jobs--these are skills that aren't typically taught in high-schools, but for hundreds of local students, a future in those fields is soon ahead.
 
Broome-Tioga BOCES held its annual graduation awards ceremony at the Forum, commemorating students who have completed the required hours of work in their desired field and earned  certificates. Also in attendance was the 2014 distinguished graduate award recipient Justin Marchuska, who says he wouldn't be where he was today if it weren't for his time at BOCES.

"When I went to BOCES I felt like I fit in. I didn't feel that feeling when I was at my home school. And BOCES made it happen for me. And now I own my own business," said Justin Marchuska, co-owner of Marchuska Brothers Construction, LLC.
 
Marchuska is establishing aN annual $2000 scholarship for promising students that come out of the BOCES program, as a thank you for providing a foundation for his career
