Glen Cove High School held its Industry Advisory Board’s inaugural session on Feb. 12 in the school’s library. 

Approximately 25 professionals, including a Nassau County legislator, representatives from nearly a dozen local public organizations, college representatives, medical professionals, educators, private business professionals, a Glen Cove High School alumnus and five current students, make up the IAB. The meeting focused on developing goals for the community and the student body at the high school. Current students presented first, citing their educational goals and post-graduation plans. They also shared events and happenings within the building, as well as information on a popular business class elective.  

Afterwards, Work-Based Learning Coordinator Jason Smiloff led a short presentation on his vision for the IAB and mediated a discussion among members, which lasted nearly two hours. The productive meeting left the IAB feeling more ambitious, dedicated and prepared to serve the needs of the students at Glen Cove High School now and into the future.
