Orleans/Niagara BOCES’ Niagara Career and Technical Education Center is one of three Western New York schools that have received a current Ford vehicle and related technical and computer support thanks to the Ford Future Techs initiative. 

Orleans/Niagara, along with Erie 1 BOCES Kenton Center and Erie 2 Chautaugua-Cattaragus BOCES LoGuidice Education Center, received a 2014 Ford Fusion that students in the Automotive Technology Program will be trained on the diagnostic technology in their classroom, taught by Jasper Adams. 

The Ford Future Techs initiative is in its second year and was created by the Western New York Ford Dealers with the goal of better preparing local high school students for careers in the automotive technical-repair industry.
