And the winners are ..... nearly three-dozen area students.
Tech Valley High School officials recently conducted a lottery for students seeking a spot in the freshman class next fall. The regional public high school chose 33 students from a pool of candidates based in home school districts that indicated a willingness to send them to TVHS.
The students hail from 16 school districts, including Guilderland, Wynantskill, Shenendehowa, Menands, Schoharie and Cobleskill-Richmondville.
