Seven C-R High School seniors enrolled in the Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School at the Center for Advanced Technology received certificates of completion this past week during a ceremony at Mohonasen High School.

Two C-R students earned campus-wide awards.

Zachary Yorke: The Gregory J. Knorr Memorial Scholarship, Welding and Metal Fabrication

Caitlin Atkinson: The SkillsUSA Student of the Year, Manufacturing and Machining Tech

The ceremony marked the completion of one- and two-year programs at the school, including machining and manufacturing, video game design, sterile processing, entertainment technology, and welding and metal fabrication.

District Superintendent Anita Murphy said the graduates went above and beyond to earn not only their high school diplomas, but professional certifications that set them apart from others as they build their careers.

“You have literally earned two degrees by pursuing a CTE education,” she said.

In a separate event earlier this month, students attending the BOCES CTE program’s Schoharie Campus were recognized during an event at C-R High School. You can read more about that event here: C-R Students earn CTE Certificates.
