Senator Gillibrand Visits ACS

ACS Superintendent Michael Bonnewell and high school students welcome Senator Gillibrand.

A group of high school students had the opportunity to meet United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand when she visited ACS on November 20th and announced support for bipartisan legislation titled "21st Century Stengthening Hands On Programs that Cultivate Learning Approaches for Successful Students Act."  The legislation supports student opportunities to learn high-tech manufacturing skills.  Funding would be used for equipment and teacher training in Career and Technical Education programs. Gillibrand stated, "Many businesses and manufacturers are struggling to find qualified employees.  This would give students the opportuntiy to learn the skills necessary to get good paying jobs in the high-tech manufacturing sector." 

Albion students have multiple opportunities to learn more about high-tech manufacturing careers and are encouraged to explore the career field through Orleans-Niagara BOCES, Ag-Science classes, Workplace Internships, and Occupational Education classes.
