The Orleans/Niagara BOCES life skills program graduated 19 students at the Historic Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda.
Graduates included Christine Cogar, Justine DeFranco, Byron Gow, Michael O’Shea, Bryan Palmer, Adam Rougeux, Carlito Sunday, Melanie Sweeney, Brooke Tesch, Mitchell Warnick and Andrew Wittlowski.
Administrators, teachers, staff members, family and friends celebrated with the graduates as they were handed their diplomas by the home district representatives.
The bell choirs from the Orleans Learning Center and North Tonawanda Learning Center performed for guests and then a party was held afterwards at the Gratwick Hose Fire Co. No. 6.
Orleans/Niagara BOCES extended its thanks to all the parents, guardians and school districts for their continued support of the life skills program and to the Riviera Theatre and Gratwick Hose Fire Co. for letting them use their space for the students’ special day.
