 NORWOOD -- O'Dourghty Cunningham of Massena Central School, a student in the Metalworking program at BOCES Seaway Tech, is the Rotary Club of Potsdam BOCES Student of the Month for January.

“Odie is a true leader in the class,” Collins said. “His attitude is always positive. He has set the bar for his peers in the program, which I believe, has brought up the motivation and success level of the entire class. He has chosen to join the IBEW 1249 Union for lineman apprenticeship upon graduation and I am very proud of his efforts.”

At a Rotary luncheon honoring Cunningham, he met with Potsdam Rotarians and was commended for his academic excellence by Seaway Tech School instructor Nanci Collins.

He is from the Massena Central School District and is the son of Robert and Melanie Cunningham.
