ILION – Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES students in 12:1:1 teacher Tammy Fanning’s class at the Pathways Academy at Remington recently honored veterans by making a wooden sign thanking veterans and sold popcorn to raise money to help local veterans.

The wooden sign thanks all veterans and specifically mentions three veterans working at Herkimer BOCES: in-school suspension teacher Anna Conley, who is a U.S. Navy veteran; maintenance employee Keith Brown, who is a U.S. Navy veteran, and micro computer specialist Jason Riesel, who is a U.S. Army veteran.

“The reason why we made the sign is because we wanted to thank our veterans for serving our country and giving us the opportunity to do whatever we want in our country,” said student Brooke Green, 16, of Richfield Springs.

Fanning’s students made the wooden sign with Pathways Academy trade industries teacher Adam Spatto. Her students also recently conducted a popcorn sale and raised $57, which they donated to the Gregory Harris Military Courtesy Room for veterans at the Syracuse Hancock International Airport. The students learned how to operate a popcorn machine for the sale and they researched local veteran organizations, before choosing the courtesy room to donate to.

“I am very proud of my students and their thoughtfulness towards those who sacrificed so much for us all,” Fanning said.

Student Megan Green, 16, of Richfield Springs, said it was “fun” selling popcorn to raise money to help veterans. Student Dylan Flike, 14, of Poland, said the class made the wooden sign “to thank our veterans,” and student Chris Keiner, 17, of Mount Markham, said they made the sign for veterans “because they gave us the freedom that we have.”

“The veterans, they’ve been serving our country,” student Chris Foote, 15, of Owen D. Young said. “I like the veterans. They’ve been doing hard work and training and other stuff.”
