BOCES Alternative Parenting Program graduatesby jmaloni
Four young women celebrated a milestone recently at the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center. All are teenage mothers and have been taking their classes at the Alternative Parenting Program taught by Peg Behnke. "Although each graduate in the Alternative Parenting Program has a different story, their common goal is to give their child the best possible future by graduating from high school," Behnke said.
