BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Broome-Tioga BOCES recognized more than 90 graduating, technically-trained high school seniors who are directly entering the local workforce at its annual Pipeline to Employment Signing Day.

During BOCES’ Signing Day on Thursday morning, students got to meet with the employers they will be working for in the next coming months.

This gives the students, going straight to the work field, their own day of recognition.

BOCES Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Tom McNair was at the event to congratulate the students and to talk about the importance of connecting education with community businesses.

“It really helps our region,” said McNair. “Obviously, there is a shortage of employers, they are looking for qualified candidates and we try to provide that.”

Harupursville Central School Senior Ryan Akulis said he was excited the event recognized him and his peers for the hard work they’ve done.

Akulis’ signing on Thursday was for his job at Auchinachie Services Plumbing, Heating & Cooling. He said he is looking forward to getting his feet on the ground and working his way up in his career.

Some of the places these students are headed include Matthews Auto Group, Diane Testani Salon, J&K Plumbing and Heating, BAE Systems, Mirabito Energy Products, United Health Services, Raymond Corp, McGirk’s, Pup in the Tub, as well as the United States Army, Army National Guard, Navy, Marines and Air Force.
