10th-graders tour local businesses through School to Careers program

CVA students tour Bassett Healthcare through STC program
Maria Palumbo, registered nurse manager of primary care, pediatrics and women’s health at Bassett Healthcare in Herkimer, speaks to Central Valley Academy 10th-graders interested in the health services career cluster on Wednesday, March 25. The tour of the Bassett Healthcare facility in Herkimer was arranged through the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES School to Careers program, and a total of more than 150 10th-graders visited local businesses during the day. Palumbo showed the students the services offered in the building – such as primary care, radiology, a cancer center, an eye clinic, convenient care, pediatrics and more. Many nurses who work at Bassett have been there for a long time – including some for more than 20 years, Palumbo said. “It’s a good place to work,” she said.


More than 150 Central Valley Academy 10th-graders split into a dozen groups toured local businesses on Wednesday, March 25, through the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES School to Careers program.

School to Careers – or STC for short – is a partnership developed by Herkimer BOCES among schools and businesses in the region with a goal of connecting students to jobs in the area through workshops, internships, partnerships and more. The business tours were one of the many ways STC has been introducing students to local career opportunities.

The Central Valley tour groups were organized by the career cluster students were interested in, and they visited locations of related organizations in the region:
  • Law, public safety, correction and security career cluster students visited Herkimer County government in the Herkimer County Office Building.
     
  • Human services career cluster students did a separate tour with Herkimer County government in the Herkimer County Office Building.
     
  • Health services career cluster students visited either Bassett Healthcare in Herkimer or the Masonic Care Community in Utica.
     
  • Architecture and construction career cluster students toured either Revere Copper in Rome or the state Department of Transportation in Utica.
     
  • Science, technology, engineering and mathematics career cluster students visited Giotto Enterprises in Oriskany, CTM Corp. in Frankfort or CondMed Corp. in Utica.
     
  • Art, audio/visual technology and communications career cluster students toured both the WKTV and WUTR television stations in Utica.
     
  • Agriculture and natural resources career cluster students visited the Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority in Utica.
