Rocky Point High School students had the chance to learn about a variety of post-graduation options through two recent experiences.

The school’s College and Career Prep class visited and explored the campus of Stony Brook University. During a walking tour, the students gained a better understanding of the large and diverse school campus and sought answers to individual questions during a 45-minute question-and-answer session with a college admissions officer.
Students in Dorothy Burns’ Sports and Entertainment Marketing class learned about the business side of the Long Island Ducks baseball team during a workshop with Sean Smith, an account executive for the LI Ducks.  Mr. Smith spoke about the company’s marketing efforts, use of promotional materials, the team’s target market, how they build brand awareness, the importance of sponsorships for the company and the different careers available in the field of sports marketing.
