W.H. students win BOCES award


Two students from West Hempstead, James Faulds and Naimah Goode, were awarded by Nassau BOCES for outstanding achievement with the Career Technical Education Award.

Fauls, an Auto Skills student, and Goode, an Office Assistant Skills student, both attend Nassau BOCES Barry Tech, a career and technical education high school that offers hands-on courses to help students develop skills necessary for jobs in their field.

“These exceptional scholars excelled in their respective fields of study and are well prepared to enter the workforce, or to continue their education at career colleges and technical universities,” Nassau BOCES said in an Oct. 28 statement.
