A key component of our CTE programs is our partnerships with local businesses. Great job to Seaway Career & Technical Education Center students for their work with J & W Orchard. Mutli-Occupations students recently made apple crates for J & W Orchard, a local business in Norfolk, NY. Partnering with local businesses create unique opportunities for our students--it's a win-win situation for students and local businesses!
This semester, students from the SUNY Potsdam Crane School of Music worked with students in Potsdam-region BOCES programs to present a sing-a-long to family and friends on December 12th. The concert was well attended and students did a fantastic job singing and playing instruments for the audience.
Senior Criminal Justice students recently organized the annual coat and canned food drive at Seaway Tech. Students and staff generously donate gently used coats and food during the holiday season. Senior Criminal Justice students organized and distributed the donations to local community organizations. Pictured below with our Criminal Justice students are seniors from our Cosemetolgy program who actively participated in the food and coat drive. Many thanks to our students for ogranizing this program and the students and staff who gave so generously during this special time of year!

Seaway Area Tech Center in Norwood has recently began training their Metalworking Technologies students on the program's new Plasma CNC table. The integration of the programming with the technology of the table brings a new training opportunity to the program. The first production projects created with this new tool were sponsor plaques for a local charity event, custom-made by two seniors in the Metalworking Tech program.
The Wounded Warrior Outdoor Adventures organization recently held their Second Annual Warrior Challenge Run. The students wanted to lend their new skills to this event. Using various design software, the students created custom plaques that will be given to sponsors of the event. Pictured below (left to right) are: Coleman Whitman (Canton High School), Mr. Ken Plumb (Instructor and WWOA organizer), and Noah Hargrave (Massena High School).
The two students created, cut, welded, and painted these plaques. Great job to these hardworking individuals! Thank you to WWOA for working with our students to create these plaques and for all you do for our veteran and active military members and their families.
