The Board of Education selected the teachers from the eligible ones of this group, An attractive bulletin describing the various courses to be offered was distributed. Immediately, a lively interest was shown by the general public. Enrollments quickly filled all possible openings in the Day School. Monday, October 15, 1928, the Camden County Vocational School opened its doors to four hundred eager Day School students. They were coming to a new kind of schoolg a school of shops, where they would be taught trade skills for three hours each day. They were the lucky ones because they had enrolled months before the scheduled opening. Many of their friends were on long waiting lists as the applicants greatly outnumbered the school's capacity. They walked. They rode bicycles. The nearby com- munities did not provide transportation. Bus service was supplied only by the more distant school districts in the lower end of the county. Yet, they came, four hundred strong. You see, these students knew they had an unusual opportunity, an opportunity never offered before to the youth of South jersey. They knew that at this new school they could learn skills that would give them entrance to industry and well paid jobs. New experiences were ahead. Experiences, which time has proven, did lead to good jobs. A number of these first students are now executives and leaders in industry. No wonder, they are boosters of the Vocational School! Coming up the broad concrete walk, the students saw a stately building. Its newness shone in the sun. Its classic lines stood out boldly, accented by the lack of shrubbery, lawn or trees. But the familiar red, white and blue banner flew in the breeze, making all feel more at home. In the spacious main lobby, the students were greeted informally and assisted to find their home rooms by cards of admittance which had been mailed to them. Before noon, all were quietly moving on prearranged schedules. The Day School was now operating smoothly, with a maximum enrollment. Full attention could then be given to providing instruction for men employed in the various industries of the county. Many had expressed keen interest in the school. They were anxiously awaiting the opportunity to improve their craftsmanship. On Wednesday, November 7, 1928, the first eve- ning classes were held. The enrollment for the first year of operation of the Night School was 756.
