“The Catch-A-Career Breakfast is like a symphony in how it all comes together – everyone taking a part to make it all sound and look so beautiful,” said Bridget Lopiccolo, who developed and organizes the morning each year with fellow teacher Paul McHugh and the support of the East Islip School-Business Partnership. “This beautiful symphony that these professionals were part of is our future workforce. The East Islip School-Business Partnership truly has amazing partners that help provide valuable career experience for our students.
