"Through HPOG, I took part in the LPN program at Erie I BOCES. I enjoyed the program and learned a great deal. I recieved financial assistance to cover the program and program necessities to make it easier for me to concentrate on my studies. As a result of completing the program, I received a great paying job. I am looking forward to continuing my education with Erie I BOCES and receiving my RN."
