Seniors Take Top Awards

Three seniors from East Hampton High School took home the top three awards last weekend in the New York State SkillsUSA contest in Syracuse. Will Field, who studies marine and motor sport technology at BOCES, came in first in the Small Engine Repair category. Eric Schoenster, who is enrolled in BOCES’ Clinical Medical Assistant program, placed third in Medical Skills, which included skills in CPR, taking blood pressure and vitals, and first aid skills such as bandaging. Mitchell Lester, who studies automotive technology at BOCES, placed third in Basic Auto Knowledge.  
These young men will pursue careers in their respective fields after high school. Field will study at the New England Institute of Technology, Schoenster at SUNY Canton and Lester at SUNY Delhi. We look forward to hearing of their success in the future.
