Nassau BOCES students on the ‘Vanguard’ of career and technical education

A group of 48 students was honored by Nassau BOCES Barry Tech recently for breaking new ground in career and technical education (CTE). These students earned the 2016 Barry Tech Vanguard Award for seeking academic and career paths that defy conventional gender roles. The award recognizes exceptional students enrolled in CTE programs that prepare them for nontraditional careers.

BOCES logo“These students are the future of the American workforce,” said Barry Tech Principal Laurie Harris. “At Barry Tech, it is our goal to teach our students the skills they need for employment and to give them direction for college. But we’re also creating thoughtful, knowledgeable leaders who will contribute to the advancement of equity in the workplace.”
