BAYONNE, NJ - Automotive students at Bayonne High School have a new project to work on, thanks to the Bayonne Police Department, and the US military.
According to Superintendent of Schools John Niesz and Board of Education President Joseph Broderick, Bayonne High School recently secured a military Humvee that will be restored by the students.
Niesz said that the vehicle will “provide our students with real life work experience," while Broderick added that "One of the advantages of vocational training is that our instructors are industry professionals.”
“The opportunity to learn from someone who works in the field will give our students deep insight about what it takes to be successful on the job."
Bayonne Police Chief Robert Geisler also celebrated the partnership between the the Bayonne Board of Education and Bayonne Police Department on this project.
“This project is mutually beneficial to both organizations,” Geisler said of the surplus military equipment that was donated to Bayonne High School. Once returned to working order the Humvee will be used by his officers, according to Geisler, for severe storm response.
