School to Business Partnership

Half Hollow Hills Central School District School to Business
Partnership Needs You!

September 2019

Dear Parent,

My name is Douglas Gannon and I am the School to Business Partnership Coordinator for the Half Hollow Hills Central School District. The School to Business Partnership is a networking group that will assist our students during their high school career and beyond. This program focuses on helping our students through many avenues such as internships, job shadowing, networking events, and mentoring. We are looking to build and grow this program in Half Hollow Hills and need your help. This program is looking for individuals and companies that are willing to pass down their expertise and knowledge to our students. Our community contains a wealth of people in corporate America. Connections with our community will enable us to utilize all of these resources and create a large group to assist our students.

Some of the topics planned for 2019-2020 contain the following: networking, what a student needs to know about the corporate world, job shadowing, mentor/mentee programs, scholarships, business etiquette, resume writing, interviewing, etc. This program will better prepare our students for college and the professional workplace. We also will be hosting our 8th Annual Half Hollow Hills Shark Tank Competition (KING OF THE HILLS) this year which is sponsored by the School to Business Partnership.

If being a part of our School to Business Partnership interests you or your company, either fill out the information below or visit our website HERE. A confirmation email will be sent to you when your information is received. Thank you again for all of your help. I look forward to meeting with you at one of our events. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at
