NY County Official Secures Masks for Auto Body Students to Continue In-Person Classes

Erie County (NY) Legislator Frank Todaro secured special respiratory masks needed for auto body students to continue in-person classes at Erie 1 BOCES Harkness Career & Technical Center.

The masks will help students in Amherst, Alden, Akron, Lancaster, Depew and Cheektowaga.


Todaro, a former student of Erie 1 BOCES and current advisory board member, went through the very same program and knows how valuable it is to have hands-on experience. The masks were hand delivered to Robert Verso and his students at the shop Nov. 5.


“When I heard Bob and his students needed these masks to continue teaching in-person, I knew I had to step in and help," Todara said. "As a former student and owner of an auto body shop myself, I know just how important hands-on learning is in order to get the best experience. Bob is doing a great job and I hope this will help him continue sharing his wealth of skills with each of his classes.”
