The first school built after the Gibbs family sold to Macmillan was in Melville, Town of Huntington, on Long Island. It opened in September, 1971, under the leadership of Mary E. Sullivan. The newly renovated office building was air-conditioned, had dictation equipment. The only typewriters were IBM electrics.
The promotional material showed the location and emphasized the Gibbs reputation which would serve both employers and residents of Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The beginning programs were one year, one-year advanced, and the adult training program for “the mature woman who wanted to enter or reenter the workforce.” The two-year program and ENTREE would be added.
