Aurora/East Aurora

The Ormsby Educational Center for high school technical and career study will celebrate spring Thursday night with its annual open house and sale of hot dogs made in the styles of five different baseball stadiums.

For $1 each, you can sample the hot peppers and onions of the Philadelphia Phillies or the chili and cheddar of the Houston Astros, prepared by culinary arts students.

Information also will be available about coursework in 16 different areas, including animal care, autobody repair, cosmetology, criminal justice, sports conditioning and natural resource management.

About 500 high school students from seven districts study at Ormsby and earn college credit, win scholarships and get jobs, said principal Tom Huebert.

The event, to be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at 1010 Center St., is open to anyone who is interested.

“Eighth grade would be perfect,” said Huebert. “You can plan for your future.”
