Congratulations to Mrs. Sherri Slater, Environmental Conservation and Forestry Teacher at the Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton & Essex County BOCES in Hudson Falls. Mrs. Slater is a hands-on teacher and brings out the best in her students. Since college is not a perfect fit for every student, BOCES offers students a great opportunity to learn a trade and start work right out of high school. Mrs. Slater not only helps her students learn about forestry, but about life. This past summer, past BOCES graduates got together and the success of Mrs. Slater’s students made her very proud.
