Rep. Jamaal Bowman tours CTE campus in Valhalla

We were proud to welcome U.S. Rep. Jamaal Bowman for a tour of our Career Services campus in Valhalla June 1.

The Congressman met with dozens of our students in programs from Culinary Arts and Cosmetology to Automotive Technology, Sound Production, Animal Science and more. The tour was led by District Superintendent Harold Coles, Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services James Gratto, Director of Career Services Dahlia Jackson, Principal Evangelo Michas, Assistant Principal Phil Donohue, and Director of Communications Brian Howard.

A former educator himself for more than 20 years, Rep. Bowman was eager to hear directly from students about all the ways that SWBOCES' programs have positively impacted their lives. Never shy, our students enthusiastically shared their goals and ambitions with him as well as the the path that led them to SWBOCES' Center for Career Services. Thank you, Rep. Jamaal Bowman!
