NYSID Honors Jim Druckman with Centennial Medal

On March 10, 2016, the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) held their Annual Benefit Dinner at Cipriani 25 Broadway. This year marks the 100th anniversary for the college, which has been leading the study of interior design for a century. In their centennial year, NYSID honored the New York Design Center’s Jim Druckman, President & C.E.O., with the NYSID Centennial Medal.

In his acceptance of the great honor, Druckman spoke of education’s importance as the cornerstone of all aspects of design, “The students of The New York School of Interior Design will soon become the next generation of designers in our industry. They will be the ones to uphold standards for artistry, innovation and practicality, and must strive to make their own mark while respecting the past. We must see that they are properly prepared for the profession. We are doing a great job. It is truly my pleasure to be involved.”

NYSID also honored designer Ellie Cullman with the Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award, real estate investor and manager Michael Phillips, President of Jamestown, LP with the Green Design Award and landscape architect Deborah Nevins with the Thomas N. Armstrong III Award in Landscape Design.
