MEDINA – Three students from Orleans/Niagara BOCES are the recipients of the Liam’s Legacy scholarships.

At the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center, Layne Hodgins, a Medina student in the Allied Health program was announced as one of this year’s award winners.

At end-of-year celebrations at the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center, Landon Sabol (North Tonawanda) and Cooper Bulkley-Fish (Niagara Academy) in the Emergency Medication Services program were recognized.

The awards were started by Jennifer Raduns in memory of her grandson Liam. The 6-month old baby was beaten by his father in 2016 and later died from his injuries.

“I wanted to pay homage to the first responders who tried to save Liam’s life,” Raduns said.  “I am happy to be able to celebrate Liam’s life by helping others.”
