Twenty-one students representing Connetquot High School’s National Business Honor Society recently attended the National Grid/Junior Achievement Young Women’s Leadership Workshop held at National Grid’s Technical Training Center in Melville.

The young women began the morning by attending a keynote address given by Mary Genoy, vice president of National Grid. Afterward, they participated in three round-robin sessions which focused on strengthening their career skills - Business Communications, Career Panel and Working in Teams.

This full-day conference provided real life experiences for the students, as they met with diverse women in leadership roles and learned from their life experiences in the workforce.
