i graduated from seneca in 1954 and went on to become an elect. engineer from ub---two great schools---wound up at niagara mohawk power company for 40 years--retired and now reside in hattiesburg miss.
Graduation class of 1966. I was in the Industrial Electricity program. I still remember paralleling the generators on the big power panel. When the lights blinked together, you could connect them.
My dad graduated from Seneca in 1927, and when he passed away in 1999, he was still using tools he made in machine shop classes.
I to went to this school and have persued my lifetime ambition of electronics electricity to this day 2011 Febuary 13. I graduated in 1972 and have ever thought of Seneca as the place that made me. Thanks to all the tough and honest teachers who wnadered the halls and rooms.
My name is Mike Mantino (email@example.com) and I graduated from this great vocational institution in 1948. Too small for sports, but I remember all my heroes. We had a great football team and our arch rival was Burgard (another great vocational institution). I am of the opinion that the decline of vocational schools in America is a sorry civic disaster. I loved electronics and electricity as a boy and pursued that endeavor (to my great satisfaction) for the entirety of my work life. The root foundation of my noble profession was acquired at Seneca Vocational High School. And I am proud of it. Pitifully, the blue collar worker seemingly was never held in high regard even though the economies of all countries are fully dependent on him. It would bring my aging heart to the brink of euphoria to see someone like Dick Cheney high up on a telephone pole in a raging, sub zero, snow storm working feverishly on a ruptured high voltage line in the undaunting effort to restore electricity to a threatened community. "Go Seneca,Go!"
