Kenmore East Seniors Debate Care Issue

The Buffalo VA Medical Center was chock-full of debate as local high school students digested and demonstrated their knowledge about end of life care. Students enrolled in Erie 1 BOCES' academically competitive New Visions Connection program debated whether society should ration end of life care. Sixteen teens from Amherst, Cheektowaga, Lancaster, Kenmore  East, Hamburg and Frontier high schools participated in the annual event.

Students representing Kenmore East High School included Julia Snitzer, who debated for the affirmative team; and Haley Parker and Andrea Stutz, who debated for the negative  team.  Also, Cameron Daniel participated in the presentation that defined end of life care.

The Erie 1 BOCES New Visions program links highly qualified high school seniors with mentoring medical and legal professionals. These competitive, off-site programs integrate English and social studies credits needed for graduation but take place at locations such as Medaille College, Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital and the Buffalo VA Medical Center.  Applications are now being accepted for the 2014-15 school year of New Visions. Students interested should visit www.e1b.org/cte and speak with their high school counselor.
