    JACKSON, NEW JERSEY- Students from the Custom Cabinetmaking program at the Jackson Center of Ocean County Vocational Technical School (OCVTS) were recognized recently for the handcrafted display case they designed and built for United Water, in downtown Toms River.

    Jane Kunka, Public Affairs Manager for United Water had contacted OCVTS near the end of last school year. “We had received several awards for community service projects and we really wanted a nice way to display them. It is important for the community to know that we are much more than a utility company; we are an active participant in community affairs,” she explained.

    Although there wasn’t much time left in the school year, two students from the Custom Cabinetmaking class who volunteered to create the display case were confident the could complete the project. Under the direction of Instructor Rob Gonsalves, students Nick Passarelli and Jared Coreti, both of Toms River, worked diligently to make the deadline. “Jared is a meticulous worker” and “Nick is always one of the first students to get involved with our community service projects” commented Gonsalves.

    United Water Director of Operations Dan Pfleiderer commended the students, “ we appreciate your efforts, you did a wonderful job.” Mr. Pfleiderer also presented OCVTS with a generous donation of $200.

    OCVTS Assistant Superintendent Nancy Weber-Loeffert added, “OCVTS is involved with many community service projects. These projects create great opportunities for our students to reach out to our communities as well as build strong partnerships with area businesses and organizations.
