BOGOTA, N.J.– The Bogota Emergency Services Youth Academy graduated Class 06 (2016) on Tuesday,  Aug. 9. The ceremony was held at the Steen School Gymnasium.

The cadets presented a close order drill to showcase the focus and discipline they learned over the course of the Academy. Bogota Police Chief Daniel Maye and Bogota Mayor Chris Kelemen addressed the cadets to congratulate them on their achievements.

Tiffany Alvarez was awarded the title of Honor Graduate for Class 06, with Dylan LeMay and Ce’Yoni Scott named first and second runner-ups. Cadets were presented their graduation certificates and highlights from their time at the Academy. A reception followed the ceremony.

The graduation capped an intense, ten day program, which pushes them to perform to the maximum limits of their abilities. Over the course of the academy, the 56 cadets learned about life skills, self-defense and first aid. In addition, they learned first-hand about land and water rescues, fire arm safety and fire safety. The goal of the program is to install a renewed sense of respect, duty and loyalty in each of the cadets. The Academy instructors work to show the cadets all the different aspect of emergency services professionals and the military.
