Community Partnership for Egg Harbor Township Schools
“The project impacted us by opening our minds to a past that is not always so ‘prideful.’”
The Community Partnership for Egg Harbor Township Schools researched and documented the history of Egg Harbor Township Schools, for which the partnership helps to raise funds and provide other supports. Looking through old school photographs, examining documents, and interviewing with former students, teachers, staff, and community members, the project team charted the incredible growth of the school district as the township grew—through its highs and lows. From this research the team created a short documentary about the history of the school district that debuted in June 2022 at a School History Night event hosted at Egg Harbor Township High School and remains part of the curriculum for students in the district.
