Business Career Day

The district, in conjunction with the Smithtown Industry Advisory Board, held its annual International Business Career Day on Dec. 11 in the library of High School West. Business and foreign language students from HSE and HSW, selected by their teachers, were invited to take part in the day’s events.         
After opening remarks by Mary Pat Grafstein, executive director of the Smithtown Advisory Board and work-based learning coordinator, and John Coady, HSW principal, keynote speaker Kevin McCrudden spoke to students about the importance of taking their education seriously.
More than 20 guest businesspeople from a variety of fields were on hand to speak with students about their career options. Students were given the choice to sit down and talk with four different guests for a 15-minute period during round-robin style sessions.
