OHM BOCES CTE Awarded $500 Grant from Kevin “Bing” Crossley Memorial Foundation Fund

The Oneida-Herkimer-Madison (OHM) BOCES Career and Technical Education (CTE) program was recently named as a recipient of a $500 grant from the Kevin “Bing” Crossley Memorial Foundation Fund, administered by the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties.

 

The grant monies will be used to purchase study guides for the small engine repair and criminal justice CTE programs.

 

“We are very humbled and grateful to the Kevin “Bing” Crossley Memorial Foundation for their consideration and support of our CTE programs,” said David Stayton, principal of the Career and Technical Education Center. “This donation will help countless students in both programs for many years to come.”

 

The Kevin “Bing” Crossley Memorial Foundation was established at The Community Foundation in honor of Kevin “Bing” Crossley, a Village of Whitesboro police officer who lost his life in a motor vehicle accident while on patrol in April 2018. The foundation awards scholarships and grants in areas that interested Kevin, such as small engine repair and criminal justice, as well as supports community outreach programs that help bring together local youth and law enforcement communities.

 

The OHM BOCES serves the following component school districts: Brookfield, Clinton, Holland Patent, New Hartford, New York Mills, Oriskany, Remsen, Sauquoit Valley, Utica, Waterville, Westmoreland and Whitesboro.
