EHT High School ALAB Students Gain Career Pathing Knowledge From Hands-on Professionals | Egg Harbor-EHC

TOWNSHIP OF EGG HARBOR — All rise. The Business Discovery Day is now open. The Honorable Dorothy Garrabrandt, Justice of the Superior Court, presides.

On Friday, March 4, Egg Harbor Township High School Academy of Law And Business (ALAB) students participated in the sixth annual Business Discovery Day – a networking event that gives them access to high-performing mentors in the field of law and business, helping to clarify and solidify their future career paths before leaving high school.

As the keynote speaker, Justice Garrabrandt kicked off the event by sharing her personal story of how she was raised in Superior Court and exposed students to the One Judge One School program, a Cape-Atlantic initiative that brings judges into the classroom to help students gain a better understanding of the justice system and grasp the relevance between what they learn in the classroom and how those classroom lessons can be applied to career opportunities around the world real.

Discovery Day 2022 also allowed the 54 high school students to attend additional breakout sessions led by three other guest presenters, including Camille Howarth, a 2015 ALAB graduate who is pursuing her JD at Drexel University Kline School of Law; Joe O’Neill, special education teacher at Egg Harbor Township High School and Maui Joe’s Shave Ice entrepreneur; and Anthony Mongeluzo, president of PCS20, an award-winning, nationally recognized IT consulting and services company with offices in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Additionally, students had the opportunity to meet the Assistant Dean of JD and Graduate Admissions at Seton Hall Law, Maria Isabel DiSciullo, who was a special guest at the event.
