ALBANY – Capital Region BOCES held its first National Signing Day on Thursday.

Sixteen high school students signed letters of intent with local businesses.

The event mirrors signing day for athletes who commit to play sports in college. It is designed to honor students who are entering a technical field.

Local business owners say their partnerships with BOCES have already paid off, because students come into the workforce with the skills they need.
