Roche, who attends Capital Region BOCES from the Scotia-Glenville Central School District, is in the auto services program, but that is not where he got his start at BOCES.

“Last year, I was in welding and it wasn’t for me, but I helped my father change the oil on his car and something just clicked. I felt called to do it,” Roche said. “I learned that automotive repair is something I like to do.”

AS a result, he switched programs to auto services this year and is enjoying his learning and education.

“It’s fun. I enjoy what I am doing,” he said.
