Students Honored for Career Related and Good Citizenship Achievements

Some local students have been honored for their achievements in career-related programs and good citizenship.

Today Broome Tioga BOCES held the 18th annual partnership for excellence recognition event.

Nineteen students throughout the area were given the glass apple outstanding student award for community service and career planning.

One award recipient Maria Christoff goes to Susquehanna Valley High School and shadowed employees at Lourdes hospital.

Christoff says she plans on going to Lackawanna College in Scranton to study diagnostic medical sonography.

"What I think it does is give the students an opportunity to visit businesses and see what it's actually like it is to work in a business day to day or if it's an apprenticeship or job shadowing you get the opportunity to see how things are done in a business," said Jim Mullins, Director of Instructional Programming.

"So I've been able to shadow the technicians and basically learn everything about it and learn a lot of terminology, the procedures the exams and I've gained a lot of experience for when I go to college," said Award Recipient Maria Christoff.

Two businesses--IBM and Lockheed Martin--also received the outstanding business partner award.
