Annual Meeting 2022

MOBOCES Hosts Annual Meeting
Posted on 04/07/2022

MOBOCES celebrated its unique workforce training efforts at its first in-person Annual Meeting since the start of the pandemic.

School board members and administrators from all nine component districts joined in the event, connecting with colleagues and hearing more about the growing number of embedded Career and Technical Education program and work-based learning experiences that help prepare students in the region for college and the workforce.

culinaryThe highlight of the evening was the food! Seniors from the new one-year Advanced Culinary Experience (ACE) program prepared six different desserts – two served at the tables and four packed in to-go boxes – totaling 600 pieces of sweets. Juniors and seniors from the two-year Culinary Arts program plated and served the food, created beautiful place settings, and cleaned up afterward. Culinary instructor Mona Chandler even created a small ice sculpture for one of the tables.

During dessert, participants enjoyed recorded musical entertainment from student groups in Rome and Camden.

In addition to programming and budget information, board members and administrators heard from candidates up for re-election to the MOBOCES Board. This year, Sally Sherwood (Camden), Dr. John Costello (Oneida) and Sue Carvelli (Rome) are up for three-year terms, and Michelle Jacobsen (Hamilton) is running to fill an unexpired two-year term.
