June 2016

Each year we devote an issue of Strictly Business to young people who are making an impact on our business community. To select our honorees we talk to key leaders in a variety of industries and not-for-profits in Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties and we invite past honorees to offer their suggestions.

This year’s group is an interesting mix. We have five small business owners, a creative director, an event coordinator, an auto service manager, a community college professor, a draftsman, a mortgage broker, several tech people, a real estate sales person, a plant manager, a director of operations, an elected official, a food service director, a manufacturing coordinator, and an economic development assistant. Wow! What a list!
Also in this issue we recognize David Lauzon, from Tupper Lake, who is the Strictly Business scholarship winner. We are proud to offer this award each year to a student from our area who is enrolled in SUNY Plattsburgh’s School of Business & Economics.

And then there is this month’s Insight feature, Erin Hynes, a SUNY Plattsburgh alum and a previous SB honoree who is now the Deputy Director of the New York State Regional Office of Empire State Development.
We are pleased to recognize each and every one of these people for their ambition and their personal and professional achievements. All have a desire to make things happen and they are doing it right here in the North Country. And that’s good for business.
