Some local high school seniors celebrated an important milestone Thursday.

Rochester high school students who are a part of the "School to Work" Youth Appearance Program at Rochester General Hospital got their diplomas Thursday. It's a special program that combines personalized and work-based training and mentoring for healthcare careers.

Many of the students come from at-risk circumstances. Others, like David White, had no interest in healthcare until they went through the program.

"I liked helping others," White said. "I wasn't really sociable when I first started the program, but getting to know other people really helped me break out of my shell."

David says he wants to be a physical therapist. This is the 25th year of the program.
