West Hempstead | Spring 2023

Career Day Inc. program at back at West Hempstead Secondary School

We came back to West Hempstead Secondary School, returning to the familiar halls after an incredible Full Day program that took place in 2019. This time, we arrived with an incredible Panel Style Assembly program designed specifically for the minds of the 8th graders. The stage was set for an engaging and enlightening experience as we gathered a panel of accomplished professionals from various fields to inspire and educate students. The atmosphere was electric with anticipation as we embarked on this new journey of knowledge and discovery, eager to make a lasting impact on these bright individuals.

We had five outstanding speakers who shared their experiences and knowledge about different career paths, inspiring students to explore their interests and passions. A big shoutout to our incredible speakers Matt Pomara, Co-Founder and Vice President at Ark Technology Companies, Inc.; Deepika Cattry, Associate Director Worldwide Commercial Oncology at Bristol Myers Squibb; Fred Treffeisen, Senior Technical Manager at SUEZ; Marie Saint-Cyr, founder and CEO at Saint-Cyr Art Studio; and John Mangione, Founder of Network Marketing Consultant and saxophonist performing all over Long Island with his Quartet. Your contributions and dedication to this event are truly appreciated.
