NY Harbor School 15th Anniversary Celebration
Leaders in the maritime, education, and environmental industries join together to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the New York Harbor School. The Harbor School 15th Anniversary Celebration is a day of festivities kicking off with a Founders Luncheon hosted by NBC’s own Willie Geist at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. The Honorable Mark H. Buzby, Maritime Administrator will serve as keynote speaker, and the school’s founding partners will be honored: New Visions for Public Schools, NYC Department of Education, South Street Seaport Museum, United Federation of Teachers, The Urban Assembly, and Waterkeeper Alliance. During the luncheon, an “Education through Restoration” panel will be led by Saskia Levy Thompson of the Carnegie Corporation of NY with panelists including Robin Bramwell-Stewart of the Port Authority, Ayana Elizabeth Johnson of Ocean Collectiv, Carleen Lyden Walker of NAMEPA (North American Marine Environment Protection Association), and Tanasia Swift, Harbor School alum and BOP employee. After lunch, guests will enjoy a cruise on NY Harbor landing on Governors Island where guests will first be treated to an open house at the New York Harbor School followed by an oyster party at the neighboring Island Oyster.
