SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- Sleepy Hollow High School is motivating its students to start thinking about their interests in a career and fields of study to pursue after high school with the return of its Power Lunch Career Panels.
Sleepy Hollow High School teacher Janet Longo began the power lunch career panel last year. Lasting the length of their lunch period, 12th-graders eat, learn and listen to the presenters as they discuss their backgrounds and experiences and field questions from students.
The first panel took place at the end of October with students learning about the food industry from three people who prepare, raise and evaluate food.
Jonathan Wright, executive chef at the Rainbow Room, shared his stories about working on the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
Paul Lightfoot, CEO of BrightFarms, enlightened the students on his company’s mission to revolutionize the U.S. produce supply chain by creating the first nation brand of local produce.
Natalie Bouthot, senior clinical dietitian at Phelps Memorial Hospital Center, discussed her role as a board-certified registered dietitian and certified dietitian-nutritionist in New York state.
