Friends Making a Difference for HVAC Students

Mark Schoff and Bill Hollenbeck met while working together at Turning Stone Resort Casino where they became good friends. Both were supervisors at the Casino before Mark began teaching HVAC at SUNY Delhi in 2016. This duo has extensive experience teaching HVAC, electrical, and plumbing at BOCES.
Current HVAC students have the wonderful opportunity to experience the best of both worlds as the Mark and Bill team teach! These adult learners have the chance to learn from both instructors as they combine theory, extensive practice in the lab, and real world examples based on their career experiences.

Here is some feedback from our current students:

  • They share different experiences in the field.
  • It’s nice to learn tips and tricks from each instructor.
  • Learning the material in different ways helps reinforce the learn-ing experience.
  • Hearing different points of view about how to approach repairs and conduct business is very helpful as we develop our own pro-fessional styles.
  • It makes the class more interesting!

BOCES is fortunate to have these two great friends teaching the HVAC program. They make a great team!
