ON BOCES District Superintendent Distributes Scholarships

Two students from the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center and two students from the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center are the recipients of scholarships from Orleans/Niagara BOCES District Superintendent Dr. Clark Godshall. 

 

The Dr. Clark J. Godshall Scholarship was created to recognize students at Orleans/Niagara BOCES who will be either continuing their education in a vocational and technical field or joining the skilled workforce. The goal of the scholarship is to provide four scholarships in the amount of $500 to be used for either attending an accredited vocational or technical program for the purpose of improving their workforce skills or to use for preparing the student for the working world.
