FBLA Makes History
Egg Harbor Township High School made history this year at the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas. EHTHS had a record high number of FIVE projects qualify for finals. An even greater level of excitement was reached when every single finalist from EHTHS were in the top 10 and placed on the Nationals stage.
Specifically, two groups made Egg Harbor Twp. HS history when Malini Gulati and Mohini Gulati became National Champions with their project being awarded first place, and Shivani Acharya, Nicholas Pennock, and Selena Zheng’s project placing second. This is the first time anybody from EHTHS has placed that high.
Congratulations to all of the students that competed, and to their advisers Kim DiMaggio, Lee Buhrman and Eileen Duff on making EHT proud.

Jet Camp with Mr. Etzel Brower
The Jet Camp sponsored b y the Aviation Institute of Maintenance instructed students in the basics of maintaining an aircraft in the air by controlling lift, weight, thrust, and drag. The program culminated into a one time experience of taxying down a shouldered runway at the Philadelphia Northeast Airport while adjacent runways served rolling jets cleared for take off. The structured aircraft frame was built to collect wing data to support lift design and will be on display for EHTPride Day on September 21, 2019.
CLIMATE and CULTURE
Students from the High School’s Communications Academy joined EHT-TV’s Mrs. Mullen and Mr. Gardner for the 2nd annual “COMM Camp” week. For 4 days in August, students in grades 10-12 participated in a variety of broadcast video and advertising experiences.
Early in the week, the students filmed and edited content for the first week of Eagle News. On Wednesday, they traveled to Ocean City Boardwalk to film a promotional video about living near the Jersey Shore. On Thursday, they went behind-the-scenes of the newly renovated Tilton Square Theater to learn how films are distributed to local theaters. They also learned about more of the technology of an IMAX theater and what goes into target marketing for movie trailers. The COMM Academy looks forward to providing more relevant learning opportunities throughout the year. Be sure to turn into Eagle News every morning during homeroom for the latest student-produced content.
Casie and the College Board
As an AP Coordinator Consultant for the College Board, Casie presented in seven locations this summer including NYC, Tulsa, and the Annual AP Conference in Disney World. Casie led several different workshops, aimed at helping AP Coordinators with all of the new changes to registration and exam ordering. Casie (and EHTHS) appear on page 113 of the coordinator’s manual, as one of four people selected for a profile. It’s the first time actual humans are featured in the manual! She’s also now the commissioner of the College Board fantasy football league. LOL!
Mr. Handshaw attends STEM Guitar Building Institute
I just thought I would share with you all my website that I made as part of the STEM Guitar Building institute I went to in July. The class was a full week and was one of the best experiences of my professional and personal life. I am excited to implement this as a project for my upper level class with hopes of making this a stand alone class in the future.
Thank you all for allowing me to go to this institute this summer and for taking the time to look through the website. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
