Past Personal Trainer Graduates Mentor Current BOCES Student

Niagara Career and Technical Education Personal Trainer teacher, Jared Karas, loves hearing about past students’ successes.  He especially loves it when they are willing to mentor his current students. 


2015 graduate Cierra Lowery is a personal trainer and Zumba instructor at Niagara County Crossfire in Ransomville.  Another graduate from 2018, Trevor Zahno, is also a personal trainer and elderly strength and conditioning coach there as well.  Recently Gianna Smalley, a student from Lewiston-Porter, had the opportunity to work with these two professionals as part of her internship.
