BOCES students celebrated a milestone today. Three students graduated and received their GED's. And what better way to celebrate than a barbeque on this beautiful day.
Students and staff gathered at the Jay Street Community Garden in Utica. The graduates have been coming to the garden and planted a number of crops.
For one graduate, she says today is a proud moment for her.
"Because to now that I finished my GED I can now go to college. I want to be in nursing," said Mu Kye Oh, one of the three graduates.
There was also a blessing ceremony. The graduates have been coming to the garden since April and learned intensive organic gardening methods.
