Herkimer BOCES students, staff help bring music to
children battling cancer through donations to KEYS program

Aug. 5, 2015


Pathways Academy staff
Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES students and staff donated recently to the KEYS Program, which provides access to music for children who are battling cancer. Pictured here are some of the Herkimer BOCES staff from the Pathways Academy at Remington who contributed to the cause. For information about the KEYS Program, visit www.thekeysprogram.org.


Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES students and staff teamed up during the past school year to donate to the KEYS Program, a local organization that helps provide children who are battling cancer with music.

For every $20 raised for the organization, it is able to provide a child with a “Smile,” which includes a music listening device, access to music and other comforting items.

In June, Herkimer BOCES special education teacher JoEllen Sampson and her students collected donations from Pathways Academy staff at the Remington Educational Complex in Ilion, and special education teacher Roseann Norod and her students collected donations from the career and technical education center at the William E. Busacker Complex in East Herkimer.

Herkimer BOCES was able to raise enough money to provide several “Smiles” to children this year. Sampson and Norod expressed gratitude to all of the Herkimer BOCES students and staff who donated.

“We thank everyone for their support of such a wonderful organization,” Sampson said.

Justin Schumacher, a student of Fort Plain who was in Norod’s class, went above and beyond by collecting donations outside of school from people in his community, and he alone raised enough to provide at least one “Smile.”
