EHTP High School Students Close Out Summer With a Visit to Blackstone

Our EHTP High School students were invited to celebrate their many successes of summer program at the Blackstone offices in Midtown Manhattan, one of the leading investment and advisory firms in the world.

Scholars kicked off the morning with presentations from EHTP’s Executive Director Jeff Ginsburg and Joan Solotar, EHTP’s Board Chair and Blackstone’s Senior Managing Director and Head of Multi-Asset Investing. Blackstone’s Senior Managing Director and Co-head of Strategic Partners, Vern S. Perry once again inspired our students with his own story and advice for the future.

Each presenter discussed the value of goal setting, maintaining focus, and having confidence — all critical tools as our high school scholars prepare for college.

We wrapped up the morning with powerful student presentations ranging from learning how to code to the importance of deconstructing gender roles to working to end street harassment. It was clear how much the students grew and how passionately they felt about their projects.

Many thanks to Blackstone for providing students with the opportunity to mark the end of an ambitious and successful summer program at EHTP!
