Comments from BOCES Students in Watertown

Recently, I had the opportunity to speak to transition students in Watertown.  I drove from a snow storm in Pennsylvania to Lake Effect snow in Upstate New York. Unlike the cold snow, I received a very warm welcome!  I want to thank Charlie Merrick and Susan Ambrose for inviting me.
