Herkimer BOCES Cosmetology program seniors Mackenzie Ritton, of Central Valley, and Olyvia Manella, of Frankfort-Schuyler, presented to the Herkimer BOCES Board of Education on Thursday, Oct 14, about the history of cosmetology. They did such a great job that Herkimer BOCES District Superintendent Sandra Sherwood invited component district superintendents during the cabinet meeting on Friday, Oct. 15, to attend an extended version of the presentation. The students did an excellent job, and the cabinet members asked questions about what the students were learning and about the artifacts that were displayed. Central Valley Superintendent Jeremy Rich expressed that he was pleasantly surprised that identifying signs of abuse is a mandated part of their training and that they have brochures about community supports they can share with interested clients.

The Health Science and Careers Senior Class recently celebrated completing their CNA testing. They accomplished this goal, despite having to spend much of their junior year, preparing for the rigorous exam through distance learning. The class, led by their instructors Christie Zambri and Vicky Hauser, also persevered throughout the ever changing 2020-2021 school year, in completing the necessary hands on experiences needed to be successful on the exam. They were one of the few programs in NY that managed to conduct a clinical experience amidst the pandemic. Zambri and Hauser honored the students with a pinning ceremony, where they individually recieved their first official Nursing Pins. Congratulations to all the new CNAs, and to the entire class for their inspirational dedication to their education and their futures.
