Earlier this month, eighth-grade students from Liberty Middle School took part in the Sullivan County BOCES Career and Tech Expo. This field trip is part of the school’s initiative to engage students in discussions about college with the hope they leave middle school motivated and looking forward to high school.
At the expo, students explored options within the Sullivan County BOCES Career & Technical Education (CTE) Program for the future. There, high school student ambassadors from Monticello and Liberty Central School District answered their questions about different trades and careers.
CTE offers high school students the opportunity to learn job skills through instruction and experience in the fields, listed below. Each program is designed to teach students the essentials for a specific career or trade while meeting industry standards. For more information about CTE, contact the CTE center at (845) 295-4152.
