MOREY’S PIERS NAMED BUSINESS PARTNER OF THE YEAR
Presented at Cumberland County Technical Education Center’s Fall Program Advisory dinner meeting, the honor recognized Morey’s Piers for establishing a new pilot program that employed 10 high school students at the amusement park this past summer. Working in various areas across departments – from admissions to food service – the students honed customer-relation, problem-solving and networking skills.
“It was definitely rewarding,” said Nick Ebner, operations manager for Morey’s Piers. “The kids were always smiling and positive, and we were thrilled to hear about how much they learned during their time at the piers.”
One of the main goals of the program is to place students in a role that supports what they have learned in school. Charles Coant, a senior at the high school, worked in the amusement park’s IT department, aligning closely with his course work. “This was a great, hands-on experience,” said Charles. “I would definitely recommend it to other students.”
While the program helped fulfill a practical need for Morey’s Piers, which has 1,500 seasonal employment positions to fill every year, it also achieves an important company value: being a good neighbor.
“In the end, the students were taught important life skills, experienced cooperative learning, made money and had fun,” said Anthony Bermudez, cooperative education coordinator for the tech school. “It’s a wonderful programthat we hope to continue for many years to come.”
