Orleans/Niagara BOCES Student creates Scarecrowby jpauly
The Niagara RIver Region Chamber of Commerce visited Orleans/Niagara BOCES today to bring hot chocolate and donuts to the Welding Program. We wanted to thank Steven Frey's class as well as student Andrew DeLine for their hard work in creating the Historical Association of Lewiston and Museum scarecrow. Although the scarecrow did not garner enough ballots to win the contest, the Chamber wanted to recognize their hardwork! We also awarded Andrew with a gift card.
Andrew DeLine, a second year welding student in Steven Frey's and Lynn Wahler's program at the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center, recently put his skills to a very creative use. Every year the Welding Program at Orleans/Niagara BOCES has made a contribution to the Lewiston Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Scarecrow Contest.
Andrew's contribution was Mr. Hal O'Ween. "I liked working on it," says Andrew. "My classmates gave me some input and a hand creating it. I liked using my imagination and I thought it was a lot of fun to make it."
One of his teachers, Mr. Frey, says Andrew is a good student. "He is very creative and talented and the scarecrow was awesome. The Chamber was very impressed."
Andrew says he gets a lot more out of the program than flexing his creativity. "I am learning a lot of skills here. It is helping me get my foot in the door for the career I want."
