    OCEAN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY The Ocean County Vocational Technical School’s Board of Education honored the Ocean County Training Center as the OCVTS 2015 Business Partner of the Year. Mr. Harold Morris, Director of the Training Center, accepted the award at the December OCVTS Board of Education meeting. The Ocean County Training Center opened its doors in September 1998 as the home of Ocean County's fire and first aid training facility. The OCVTS Law and Public Safety program is housed in the training facility, which is located in Waretown, NJ. The students, who attended career-specific classes for half of their school day, have received extraordinary training opportunities through the daily operations of the facility; observing professional training sessions, participating in drills, and learning from guest speakers representing all areas of criminal justice professions.

    September marked the inaugural year of the full-time OCVTS Academy of Law and Public Safety. Ocean County high school juniors and seniors can now receive all of the classes necessary for high school graduation integrated with criminal justice curriculum, at the Training Center. Mr. Morris was instrumental in overseeing the construction of an addition to the facility as well as creating a customized learning environment for the incoming students.

    Ocean County Freeholder and OCVTS Liaison Joseph Vicari attended the presentation at the December Board meeting and commented, “The interest in Law and Public Safety is increasing every year and it is important that we are able to address the need for quality education and provide students with opportunities that they cannot receive anywhere else. We recognize Mr. Morris and the Ocean County Training Center for the dedication to our students and thank you for your continued involvement in the district.”

    Mr. Morris addressed the board, commenting, “It is a pleasure to work with Ocean County Vocational Technical School. I have gotten to know many of the administrators, the teachers and the students who attend classes and I see that the program is making a difference in their lives. The opening of the new addition and the full-time program provides outstanding opportunities for students who are looking for a career in Law and Public Safety.”

    The Business Partnership of the Year Award is sponsored by the New Jersey Council of County Vocational Technical Schools. Each of New Jersey’s 21 county vocational-technical school districts recognizes an organization annually. According to NJCCVTS President Timothy McCorkell “What our (recognized) business partners have in common is a passion for their work, and a commitment to the continued growth and evolution of our schools as a resource for both students and their own future workforces.”
