Local students consider career paths during annual Herkimer BOCES Open House

HERKIMER – Local students had the chance to explore not just the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES classrooms on Wednesday, March 9, during the annual Open House, but also potentially their future careers.

Sean Wren, an eighth-grader from Herkimer, said he decided to visit during Open House because he recently attended the Journey from 8 to Great program, which allows local eighth-graders to tour Herkimer BOCES, and it caused him to think he might find a class that leads to a good career for him.

“I took a field trip here, and there were a lot of good opportunities,” he said. “During the field trip, it was only about two minutes per class, so now I have more time to experience it.”

The Herkimer BOCES career and technical education classrooms and Valley Pathways in Technology Early College High School classrooms were open to the public during the Open House. Visitors were able to see the CTE and VP-TECH classrooms, talk with instructors, visit with current students, view or participate in special demonstrations or look at displays from organizations in the lobby.

Ryan Jordan, a 10th-grader from Owen D. Young, said he definitely plans to attend BOCES.

“It’s helped my dad out, it’s helped my brother out and it’s probably going to help me out,” he said.

Ryan said his brother, Andrew Jordan, graduated from the building construction program, and his father, Rich Jordan, graduated from the building construction program in 1987 – also building the house they live in. His sister, Rebecca Jordan, also graduated from the Herkimer BOCES criminal justice program.

Being able to visit all the classes is a good experience for students, Andrew said, and he’s choosing among building construction, outdoor power equipment and health science careers.

“I came here just to see what I want to do in my future,” he said.
