GREENE – The Raymond Corporation honored two seniors, Brandon Kenyon and Andrew Norton, for their participation in the Youth Apprenticeship Program at a ceremony Wednesday night.
The Youth Apprenticeship Program is provided through Broome-Tioga BOCES and gives students an opportunity to “see school learning and employment while working in their occupational field of interest.”
Since 1991, Raymond has accepted 56 students into the program, in which they give on-the-job training and ask participants to provide a unique solution to a problem or question while in the workplace.
“They’ve been absolutely awesome partners,” said Sandy Watkins, program development specialist at BOCES. “They do an outstanding job in mentoring and shepherding the students with support and guidance.”
