Lessons on Civic Engagement

Bayport-Blue Point High School students had the chance to meet and speak with Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone as part of the building’s School-to-Business program. More than 100 students, teachers and members of the Bayport-Blue Point Chamber of Commerce spoke with the county executive about Suffolk’s water quality, improving transportation infrastructure, and downtown revitalization projects. Additionally, the group discussed efforts to reverse the trend of young adults leaving Long Island.
