The high school’s two Virtual Enterprise International program teams recently participated in the annual Long Island Regional Business Plan and Trade Show at LIU Post, competing against 115 high school firms across Long Island and bringing home two medals. The firms – Fashion Cents, which offers monthly clothing subscriptions and premade clothing bundles, and Gifts to Go, which sells a variety of theme baskets – developed and presented a business plan to a panel of judges. The students look forward to preparing and competing in the national business plan competition and trade show in April in New York City.

Three of the Islip VE students – Sophia Mirando, Shane Monastero and Jayden Narvaez – were nominated by teacher Joseph Modica to interview for LIU Post scholarships, and all three received full four-year academic scholarships to attend the university.
