The Curran & Conners Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to Gabby Lynn of the AP Art class who was the winner of this year's Curran & Conners Scholarship at Smithtown High School East.  Yesterday I had the opportunity to tour the offices of design and advertising agency The Curran & Conners with Gabby and the winner from Smithtown West and it was a terrific learning experience.  The company's vice president and office manager brought us through their offices and gave the students some terrific advice on succeeding in the industry and what it takes to make the cut.  We had a chance to look at some of their amazing design work and get a real sense of what's it's like to work in one of the big firms!
