This week’s snow served as a lesson some students at the Capital Region BOCES Career & Technical Center could dig in to.

The students are part of a construction program. They learn everything from maintenance skills to equipment operation, including using a plow, dozer and front-end loaders used to clear snow.

Graduates go on to work for the Department of Transportation, and county highway departments across the state.
