Guadalupe, a Member of the Bridgewater-based law firm of Norris McLaughlin, P.A., as a “star” with the Partnership Award at its 15th anniversary celebration, “An Evening with the Stars,” on February 16, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. Guadalupe was honored for his “unwavering commitment and support in the shared vision of SCIP in helping to enlighten, employ, and empower many future leaders and entrepreneurs.”
This year’s Gala Chair was Mark Szollar of The New York Times, and the keynote speaker was the Honorable Judge Esther Salas, U.S.D.C., New Jersey. The gala was hosted by WPIX Channel 11’s Monica Morales and Pierre Salamon of Victorinox Swiss Army. Paul Volcker, former Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, was a special guest. Other honorees included Sterling Roberson, Vice President, the United Federation of Teachers [UFT] (Advocate Award); Jeff Klare and Noritza Perito, CEO/President, Hire Disability Solutions (HDS) (Humanitarian Award); and Dr. Bill Crouch, Jr., President, Georgetown College (Leadership Award). A highlight of “An Evening with the Stars” was the recognition of the Class of 2011 students. The SCIP program provides bright, promising New York and New Jersey high school students with corporate mentoring, leadership development, and internship opportunities to gain valuable business skills.
The SCIP internship is a six-week program designed to provide a corporate experience for rising high school juniors and seniors. The students meet with corporate executives from leading companies, attend corporate site visits, sharpen their technical and writing skills, and learn about business etiquette. SCIP offers an extremely rare inside look into corporate America. Students walk away with lifelong friends, lessons, and the tools necessary to fulfill their potential.
