Modern Disposal Services announced a new partnership with Niagara Orleans BOCES. In early March, Modern welcomed one welding student and one diesel mechanic student for a spring semester paid internship program. It stated, “Learning real-life, hands-on experience is the perfect opportunity for all involved. Students Charles and Bryce gain valuable knowledge and school credits, while Modern gets to introduce the students to their fleet maintenance program and welding operations.”
Leaders from Modern and Niagara Orleans BOCES recently gathered to review how the program is going to and to evaluate next steps.
A press release noted, “Both parties are pleased with progress to date and excited to explore other opportunities for more students in the future.
“As a large employer in region and one with a variety of career opportunities, Modern understands the importance of partnerships with BOCES and other neighboring schools.”
Modern CEO Mike McInerney himself graduated from Ken-Ton BOCES’ auto mechanic program during his high school career and proudly supports these partnerships.
McInerney stated, “I couldn’t be more pleased for us to welcome BOCES students to Modern. my own BOCES experience proved invaluable of my education and laid important groundwork for the continuation of my career.”
Whether a student wants to work full time out of high school or attend a two- or four-year college, Modern provides various opportunities at its headquarters in Model City and locations throughout Buffalo.
